Pumpkin Trellis

I decided that I wanted to try growing pumpkins on a trellis. Maybe I can save some space and also minimize the destruction from the infestation of squash bugs I get every year. Maybe getting the pumpkin leaves off the ground will help... I won't hold my breath though.

We got our supplies at Home Depot:

I figure the pictures are enough of an explanation:
We welded the mesh sheets together. You can also use trellis netting or a pricey roll of this metal mesh (also found at Home Depot).

Hope this inspires someone!
