Stringing a Trellis

Our “Champion of England” peas will grow too tall to support themselves (we hope), so providing a trellis will keep them off of the ground where they would be more susceptible to pests and disease.  A trellis will also save square footage in a garden and add some vertical aesthetic interest.  Even if students can’t reach the top of the trellis they can help string it by winding the twine around the bottom pole and then passing it to someone taller.  Once again getting students to think about why we do things can make even the simplest task an important part of their education.
