This spring, I showed you how I built my squash arch. Since then, it has become my favorite part of the vegetable garden. I absolutely love how this has turned out. It’s made controlling the squash plants super easy, and the squash look so cool hanging down.
It’s an attention grabber too, everyone that comes over comments on how cool it is. I am definitely going to make this a permanent part of my vegetable garden. Heck, next year I might build one or two more to grow my beans and cucumbers on too. Here are some photos for you to enjoy…

There’s one thing I would mention to someone thinking about adding this type of arch to their garden. The arch will create shade when it’s covered. Just be aware of this so you don’t end up planting tomatoes in an area that’s normally full sun, but will be shaded by the squash arch when it’s covered.
