Happy Mother's day all !  Last year Mom said she wanted a coat tree, so i made one using wood from the land including an actual tree which needed to be removed anyway.  This year mom said she wanted a cucumber trellis for her smaller garden at her new place which is in town.  She only requested that it be 4 ft tall and those were the only requests i had to work with.  

i measured her available garden area and i made this easy super simple effective trellis using simple 2x4's and some cattle type fencing wire mesh, or possibly concrete mesh.  Cucumbers are climbing plants which can be trained and they evidently do better when they can climb and grow something which can support the "fruits" or vegetables rather.  i like the rustic decor wood grain and rust look but i told her it should be painted for weather resistance.  

It turned out like this
