My method of using hog panel provides easy access and super support for tomatoes, squash, beans, and gourds alike. I also pile on the straw for moisture retention and weed control.

I do nearly the same thing using 2 panels of concrete reinforcement mounted on either side of 4" post. I train the plants up between them and use scrap pieces of 12 gauge coated copper wire to attach the plants to the grid like curtain hooks. I move the whole thing from year to year.
