Hi Group,
  I have had a terrible time trying to get my cukes to climb a trellis. I
used a 6x6 netting, supported by a tight #9 wire that's hung btween 5'
cedar posts every 20'. The cukes grow wonderfully (on the ground) but
won't climb with any regularity, maybe one every 10'.Can anyone give me
some suggestions or ideas. My back just kills me when it's cuke pickin
time.Thanks in advance for the help!
