One of the biggest complaints I hear about gardening is that I have no space. I have a solution for you! Try Vertical Gardening. Vertical vegetable gardening saves both space and allows you to harvest produce easily. I love vertical gardening because it saves my back. I don’t have to bend over to pick and I tend to find that my produce does better. It benefits your plants by allowing air circulation around your crops and reduces the chances your plants will get a fungal disease.
Simply train your plants such as cucumbers, beans squash and tomatoes to grow “up”. Use A-frames, arbors, cages, or make a teepee from stakes. This allows the plants to climb and grow up the surface instead of along on the ground. You can also tie them to vertical strings or secure them to attach or climb up a wall or fence. Think outside of the box when it comes to vertical gardening.
I did this last year with my cucumbers and green peppers. I used a tomato cage and it worked great!
