And yes KY em !pick two eat one.. bean of choice here
Good thought. When I planned to use the tall chain link fence between our yard and our neighbors, I hadn't considered the potential rabbit damage. They used to eat my baby bean plants in the garden area until my brother put a low fence around it.
Guess I'll have to do some more thinking and planning before planting along the fence.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I think I'm going to go with a straight up and down design, this gives me a couple of ideas to play around with. Getting ready to make a trip to the garden center and hardware store next week to get most of what I need for the garden. Think I'll probably plant a small row on each side of the trellis.
Prior to this year, I'd only been growing in containers on a balcony, decided to get a community garden plot as well this year so I could grow more variety of plants (and also some bigger tomatoes, too).
