Vertical growing.... Empty Vertical growing....

Post  itsablondething 5/16/2010, 8:31 pm

Question... I have a teeny tiny yard, and really only room for 4 beds that I can put a vertical frame one. I am having a hard time narrowing it down what I am going to grow vertically.

I am wondering what the reason is for limiting melons and squash to one per 2 sqaures? The size of the leaves? I haven't done this before, and I know that most vining things do seem to take over a traditional garden bed.

What have you grown vertically that has done well one plant per one square?

Thanks!

We love the pickling cucumbers! They are a favorite at our house. My kids like to pick them off the plant, wipe them on their shirts and eat them... just like that Smile


Some people actually pickle them, but we just eat them as is.

Vertical growing.... Empty On my vertical trellis's I have...

Post  kiwirose 5/17/2010, 12:20 pm

snap peas, pole beans, cukes and summer squash. I have cukes and squash growing up the same trellis - well they will once they are big enough, and then peas on one of their own, and pole beans on one of their own. The pole beans will create a more shady spot, and I have some lettuce, arugala and swiss chard growing in that spot - it will still get some sun just not full sun as it would if the beans weren't there. I have also found that my raddish, and spinach like the shade more so I don't miss out on the use of that area under the trellis.

Just my thoughts...

For last year's trellis crops I grew 2 cucumbers per square, 1 indeterminate tomoto vine per square (Juliet and Sweet Million Cherry tomatoes are vines), and 8 sugar snap peas per square. I also planted 1 butternut squash per square but it didn't grow well so I never found out if this was enough room or not, it was supposed to be 1 per 2 sqaures but I didn't realize this when I planted it; it didn't grow well because I may have disturbed the roots too much when I transplanted it, it got hit by some late frost, and the season was cool/overcast all summer. I also tried 1 Minnesota midget cantaloupe per square but planted too late from seed for it to amount to much so I am not sure if 1 square was enough room or not for this dwarf variety. I will be trying it again this year.

I will also be trying sweet dumpling squash, acorn squash, buttercup squash, and spaghetti squash this year -- they are all vining winter squashes. I am trying them each in one end square next to sugar snap peas in case they need the extra room later in the season when the snap peas are done.
