I believe it's safe to say that Meg and I tend to think in bamboo. The stuff is like Tinker Toys for gardeners. Our latest bit of backyard construction is a three poled obelisk (you may call it a tripod, but when you crest twenty feet, it becomes so much more). We have morning glories started at the bottom of this thing and by mid August it will be covered. I still need to attach another level of cross supports about mid-way up to reduce the risk of collapse. But for now, she's good.

At this height we'll be attracting beneficial insects from Ohio. Just think of all the resources and manpower Pharaoh could have saved with one of these.
