I'll bet this is a great way to avoid squash borers and other pests as well. Can't wait to see how it works.

The bug pests may be lower but I may encounter other issues. As you know, we have very cool nights and water condenses on things. On soil, the water gets absorbed fairly quickly, but on the roof, it takes a while for the sun to burn it off. I think this might be ideal for powdery mildew. To minimize this, I decided to trellis everything except the water melons. So far, so good, but its early in the season.
