That's awesome!!! What do you have growing in there? How does it hold up to the heavy plants, like zucchini and such?

This is my first year with this structure, but I think it will do ok as long as the plants are not aloud to get too big. Last year I used tomato cages and it turned out fine.

From left to right is: cucumber, squash, zucchini, cucumber (all together in the same row), lettuce, onion, carrots, peas, banana peppers, bell peppers, tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes.

It looks smaller than my garden... yet you have like TWICE as much as I do in it!! I am scared of my squash spreading around and killing everthing!! Maybe I spaced them too far??

Ha. Thank you. It is a vertical garden. The point is for things to grow up instead of out Smile Today it was so cool. Someone just driving by knocked at the door and asked if they could come look at my garden! That is a long way from my first garden getting absolutely nothing out of.

Thank you. I am so excited about it. This is by far the best garden I have had. Now if only nothing happens to it.

It does get hot, but I do not have a problem with my garden. That is why I plant so early, so things like lettuce are done before it gets too hot.

It's beautiful! And hasn't it shot up the last couple weeks! Looks like you'll be harvesting stuff very soon.

I'm on the just learning curve for gardening in my area. We used to live in a sub-desert climate. Now live in the Pacific Northwest along the coast. Way different.
