Building Stuff (Trellis Time)
Even with unlimited space, vertical gardening is a good idea. It allows for air circulation and makes harvesting easier in addition to maximizing space. My black-eyed peas went a little crazy last year, so after reading Vertical Vegetables and Fruit, I set to work on two trellises. The running teepee type trellis will be for black eyed peas that I have yet to plant (they will shade the spinach and lettuce in this bed, as I'm hoping to extend the season a bit).
Below is my attempt at a ladder-type trellis for delicata squash. Tat soi currently resides in this bed, but the squash has been planted.
