Besides Cucumbers and vine beans, what other vegetables do you trellis?

Can I trellis Spaghetti Squash? Or will I need to help them with slings?

I plan to put cattle panels out to trellis some things, but want to figure out which things I can successfully trellis before putting it in the garden.

Thanks for any help!!

You can trellis squash for sure. I've seen some designs that look like a tee pee with branches or boards running on a couple of sides for support. The cattle panels should easily support the squash, you may just have to train them through the holes as they grow...
hope that made sense.

Great, thank you for the suggestions. I was hoping that the strength of the cattle panel would hold more weight than other options.

Happy Gardening!
Thank You!
