Ladder as a Hanging Trellis

With limited space for a garden, I have to come up with new ways to grow things. This is the new hanging trellis I made to grow cantaloupes on. It is an old ladder supported by plant hooks on the fence side and utility hooks and nylon string for the outside.

When the melons start getting big, I will put mesh cloth around them and use hooks hanging from the steps to support the mesh. The cantaloupe plants are in the painted 5 gallon bucket, the other 2 planters are flowers.

Great idea! Way to recycle and save money, too.
