Anybody made the A Frames with 1 1/2 inch PVC ? Not only for tomatoes but vining veggies & pole beans etc?

Easy knock down and storage.

Thanks for the A frame idea , put together this today with the netting , 2 rows of tomatoes spaced about 3' apart the net was too short , only 30' had another but that was even shorter , I'll need to get at least one more if it works well , I might try strings with a board along the lower edge ,P5300197.jpg

That looks great! Mine is almost finished too, however, I ended up making it all from tree saplings. They are 7' tall and 20 feet long. I will grab a photo one it's finished. I have to add the corner supports and the string to tie them up.

My two rows of tomato's also have seed started marigolds planted between each plant and I am using the 2lt soda bottle water containers ar each plant. On each end of the trellis, I have a tomatillo in a concrete wire cage.
