Cattle Panel for Pole Beans
It seems that a couple of seasons ago on another forum there was a discussion about using cattle panels to grow things on in the garden.
I did this with pole beans last year and will definitely do it again. I just need more panels.
I think you could raise lettuce inside the hoop....maybe there would be enough sun on the south end. I may give that a try too. It was lovely standing upright in the shade pulling off handfuls of beans.
