Crafty Pea Trellis - finished trellis

Crafty Pea TrellisI'm a fan of sugar snap and snow peas. I've seen all sorts of trellises for vining plants like these. Most are some variation of cedar lattice or pipes and wires. I wanted something I could compost with the leaf matter at the end of the season. With a very few durable pieces I could disassemble and reuse. I came up with this design based on what I had in my garage and scrap wood pile.

Puppy Recovering from Parvo Can't Walk?I have a pup with parvo. I took her to vet and got her IVs and injectable meds. 6 days passed and she recovered, slowly drinking by her own, eating little by little and now she's on oral supportive medication. She is also on meds for deworming, but I notice she has trouble walking. She can stand, but not walk. Is she still on her recovery phase?

The only markings I see are on the underside. The number 1414 and then below that 15. I'm not sure where it was purchased into our family, but most likely in Michigan in the last 20 years.
