Look at the trellis made from recycled/repurposed materials that I created. Thing's crazy! And sadly not put to good use this summer because my lazy butt didn't get to planting the beans I bought. Next season though. Let me tell you what it is though:
Recycled Coat Rack Trellis
- Rubbermaid draw with holes drilled in bottom, filled with garden soil/potting soil mix.
- Three 6"+ containers with their bottoms cut out and firmly stuck into the top of the drawer-container, so as to add height, filled with potting soil.
- The frame of a clothing rack, duct taped with leopard print duct tape from Dollar Tree
- A pest-resistant mulch layer on top.
Last year I did tomatoes and peppers and it was mildly fruitful. Next year I want to do chive and marigold on the bottom layer around, to help with pest resistance, and then beans in the container, to grow up the trellis.
