I have utilized both container gardening and raised bed square-foot gardening over the last three or four years with good results. This year, I am stepping it up a notch.
I have twelve raised beds which I will be planting. In addition to those, I plan to plant as many containers full of vegetables as possible. Last year I did my cherry tomatoes in large pots and five gallon buckets. I think I had about eight of them. They did really well. This year I want to try container gardening with:
- Sqaush (grown up a make-shift trellis)
- Sweet Potatoes
To utilize even more space in my raised beds, I plant to nail some 2 x4’s into an arch at the end of some of my beds, string a grid patter with twine onto the arch and grown cucumbers and beans upright.
I have also seen different plants grown in hanging pots or upside down in recycled soda bottles (like a Topsy Turvy thing, but free). I’m wondering what I could grow like that? Sounds like a fun experiment.
Have you had any luck with vertical and/ or container gardening?
