Homemade cucumber trellis from Bamboo and Crepe Myrtle limbs and companion planting chart

I love mixing up plants in my garden. Finding the right mix of herbs, vegetables, flowers and seeing what surprises come each season. Here’s a good chart I found and so appreciate the options and details. Maybe you’ll enjoy this too.

This year I’m going to mix something with the cucumbers that I’ve planted as well as many of the other plantings. We crafted a trellis (below) ┬áspecifically for the cucumbers from recycled tree limbs from our farm. I’m thinking a companion climber might be in order to go along with the cucumbers, but who knows??
