Garden Tripod

We are growing sweet peas in a garden.  Sweet peas like to have a structure to climb.  For these tripods I used 3 lead x 4 bight turks heads tied with 1/4 inch manila rope.  To tie the knots I put all three sticks side-by-side, tied the knot, set the sticks into there position in the tripod and then worked the slack out of the knot.  I also added pieces of unraveled rope to the tripod to give the pea plants something additional to climb on (not shown).
