Take advantage of microorganisms in the compost pile to eliminate the tedious job of removing
dead, dry vines from nylon trellis netting. Instead of laboriously cutting the tangled stems
off while trying to avoid cutting the netting itself, take it down—vines and all—and put it
into the compost pile. Decomposing organisms will virtually clean the organic vines off the
nylon mesh by spring when it can be retrieved and put back into service.
