In today’s 2 minute tip, I share how we train vertical crops like tomatoes, winter squash, pumpkins, watermelons, and scarlet runner beans up our conduit/remesh trellises. One Yard Revolution is all about growing a lot of food on a little land using sustainable organic methods, while keeping costs and labor at a minimum. Emphasis is placed on improving soil quality with compost, mulch, and compost tea. No store-bought fertilizers, soil amendments, pesticides, compost activators, etc. are used.

    What orientation are your garden beds you use for vertical gardens? Do they shade out the other beds??

    When you train your veggies, it's important that they want to learn. 😉

    All very easy, but my problem with melons and watermelons is how to prune them to stop them taking over the entire trellis or section of garden.

    I let the main shoot reach around 4 feet and then pinch it out, and pinch out the sideshoots lower down at three or four leaves.
