All of my bamboo stakes are getting old and breaking. Last year was pretty much the last year they were going to be able to hold up pea vines. I debated on buying some metal pea fences, my mom has been using the same ones for many years. But then I decided I’d rather use up what I already had on hand. I thinned saplings in the woodlot, something that needs done anyways.
As a result I ended up with a nice trellis built of saplings. It’s really a win/win. Two chores completely at once and I think it looks quite nice as well. One of these days I’ll build a fence from saplings, I love how natural they look. They really do settle right into the garden.
