Today Me and my girlfriend made a bean trellis for our pole bean variety called Blauhilde.

One of the bamboo sticks snapped, so unfortunately I will have to get a couple more.
The neighbor in my community garden found a mole cricket. It is quite an invasive species here in the Netherlands, and not loved for the fact that it eats young seedling roots.

Nice trellis.

I would add some diagonal bracing though. As it is I think the whole frame could potentially tip along it’s length.

It's little consolation once they've damaged the garden, but at least the mole crickets are a tasty treat.

Hi Michael, I was out of bamboo sticks when I put this down yesterday, but today I have bought some more and braced the structure.
