I hear you on the zips - I had a bunch left from various products and yeah, not worth a shit outdoors. THe UV-ones last a nice long time.
THe cattle fence wouldn't be overkill for me - I'd use it for trellising stuff critters don't bother much. 10' poles - same here, folks at store say they've never seen them stocked on site, you have to order them. The hardware hasn't been an issue for me, don't really hook much to the fence or poles.
ahhh, you would trellis on the outside. man... thats an interesting concept.

Well, my plan was to technically keep as much of the fruiting part on the inside, where a potential deer's head won't fit. I'm thinking melons(I use mesh bags for hanging), winter squash(bags). Maybe hang some eavestrough on hooks and grow some CHinese cabbage or lettuce in the shade of some green beans. I do a bit of that here, short shade plant next to tall shit. Garden is angled for the sun, not the property lines 30' away.

no, thats a really great idea. If I could do that it would give me so much more growing space.

Apparently I'm at the correct latitude, and I have a nice spot for them, so you tell me what you'd like me to grow, and I'll do it.
DUDE! That would be awesome. It looks like there are some that are native to NM, which would be awesome. I could send you beer in return?

Ordered a couple Neomexicanus rhizomes to plant. They look pretty.
Oddly, you can graft a hops plant to a cannabis root(but not the reverse). Always wanted to try that. It's too late in the year for me, Domon or valve. Days will be too short and cold when they are trying to finish. MIght happen with really great transplants. (you)Jehannum will struggle against heat and need to plant in partial shade. Basically hops want to be in Germany, in a beer garden. :chikken:

I have 70'(?) of 8' cattle fence trellis now. I cut the 16' sections in half in the parking lot of Tractor Supply, haul on roof rack of shit SUV.

@Jehannum - what do you have to haul shit, when you need to haul shit? Is there a shit vehicle in the stable?

Yeah, the one I bought (Amalia) is down at the nursery, and supposedly grows here on the mesa.
