Using old ladders as vegetable supports

Using old wooden ladders as a vegetables or fruit support

It was off to the Sandham Memorial Chapel this weekend as the folks were visiting – if you are in the area, you must go!

Anyway at the back of the chapel was a small vegetable garden and at the rear, the gardeners had “re-purposed” some old wooden ladders.  It was such a lovely idea, simple, sturdy and you can adjust the frame to your hearts content.

I am not sure what they were going to be growing at this time of the year but ever since I have been keeping an eye out on Freecycle for any old wooden ladders for the allotment.

Of course you could use any old ladders but I think wooden ones look the best although they are a rare thing these days (unless you work on power lines of course!).
