    Where did you get your trellis from? Did you buyi it or make it?

    I purchased mine. I’m sure they’re not hard to build, it probably just requires the right tools. The aluminum pipe is really cheap, but you’d need to cut it, bend it, and have pieces to connect it.

    Both of the online sites from this post sell trellises. They are also called “tomato towers.”

    I always put my trellis on the north side so it doesn’t shade the other plants. Now, if you’re planting summer crops (tomatoes or cukes, or even melons) and wanted some shade to help cooler-weather plants (lettuce), you could plant them on the south side.

    Just wondering if it matters what side you place the trellis on in relation to the sun?

    My mother-in-law also sows her onion sets that close and then thins the ones in the middle to use as green onions and then lets the others grow into large onions.

    Thanks for all your help. I’m interested in reading about your irrigation system since we’ll be out-of-town alot this summer.
