Conduit stakes for mellons
My winter reading this year included Square Foot Gardening.. The book gave me the idea of the electrical conduit trellis for in my conventional garden. My plan was to use half inch conduit and 4 ft rebar. I am sure this is sturdy enough for cukes, pole beans etc. I am not sure about watermelons and cantaloupes. For heavier crops, Mel stated to use 3ft fence posts and use pipe clamps to attach the conduit. It does not sound to me like that would hold the weight and may tip over. Does anyone have any experience with this? I would appreciate some advise.
Thank you, Scott
PS : I am going to grid my 3 x 6 flower bed for smaller veggies and lettuce. Sounds like a good idea.
