August 26, 2005 – Squash Tunnel

One of this year’s experiments was to bend a 16 foot cattle panel over as a half circle and plant gourds on it. Part of the reason was to span the pile of fenceposts destined to be grape fencing.

It turned out well, next year it may be worthwhile to make it double-wide and trying cucumbers to get them off the ground and maybe help prevent wilt.

Here’s a view of the fruit from the inside – I love the filtered minty green color inside the tunnel.
