Last year I grew pumpkin, cantaloupe, green beans, tomatoes, and cucumber on 10ft x 5ft trellises using Mel Bartholomew's design from Square Foot Gardening. It is super simple and cheap: Use 1/2 inch electrical conduit for the sides and top (with elbows at the corners), tie on trellis netting (http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B000BZ8FXS), stick two 4ft pieces of 1/2 inch rebar 2ft (or as far as you can go into the ground/raised bed), and then place the electrical conduit on the rebar. I think I got enough material to make 6 10ft x 5ft trellises for about $75.

Here's a video where some other guy talks about using the same method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=raFtcKNpGYM

And here is a small album of my trellises from last year:

+Mike Pfirrmann Thanks so much for the very detailed instructions here - it seems very simple to construct and very sturdy.  You got a lot of bang for your buck here!  And I love the pic of the watermelon in a sling!  Thx so much for posting!

Thanks to everyone who posed behind our photo wall, but the biggest thanks of all goes to Rachel for constructing this for us.

Great idea.
Hanging something like a surge protector when you're cleaning up wires behind your desk is a pain to get right. If you happen to have a photocopier sitting around, American Woodworker suggests you sim...

Wouldn't it be nice if fruits and vegetables had longer shelf lives? Unfortunately, most expire all too quickly. The Bargaineering blog has a thorough guide on how to keep your produce fresh as long a...

Script I wrote to fix a Gmail annoyance (hide the "Send Feedback" box) received a shout-out from Lifehacker. Thanks to +Peter DePasquale for the inspiration.

Took about an hour for a single plain pizza pie. Terrible service. Many people who ordered after us received food before us.
