    This structure is in my back yard. Any suggestions what would grow good on this? Muscadines?

    It is about 7-8 ft. off the ground. I live in south central Georgia. I will also post on the Georgia state thread.

    Muscadines are a good option, or you could run strings up and get cucumbers or certain melon types to grow up it.

    With the right vines, it could be a backyard paradise. What is your zone?

    I would suggest relocating the fire pit from under the trellis. I know you are probably only planning on a

    “Small fire” but the heat will go up and could cause a problem.

      The firepit was there when I moved in. I probably won’t use it except for maybe to get biochar and/or ashes for the garden.

    I would grow something where the fruit is hanging down like red noodle beans, Armenian cucumber, etc….easier to pick from such a tall trellis. 😊

    If you want something temporary and edible, very good in fact, Asian Long Beans. They will grow through the summer.

    What are your wishes, you can do a combination perennials and seasonal maybe?

    I built something similar in the yard and stretched hortinova trellis between the long walls. This year one side is long beans and the other is Trombocino squash. I figure something different every year to rotate crops. Cucumber, beans, peas, melon, squash… could alway go berries or grapes.

    It’s perfect for growing indeterminate tomatoes single-stem method.
