The links don't normally get that hot because they have a small surface area and lots of ventilation. The top rails and posts are the hot ones. Grow a vine at the base of the posts and string it through the fence links. However veggies are hard to reach through the small holes. Good luck.

<![CDATA[Re: growing on a chain link fence]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/521/growing-on-a-chain-link-fence?commentid=1997 I grew up in an urban area with a very small yard, but the chain link that divided the lots was just brilliant for growing so many crops and plants! Cucumbers, raspberries, tomatoes, squash, peas, etc. Think of it like a long stretch of tomato cages which will support any plant that likes to "lean on" or climb on something.
