Ikea Shoe Organizer as a vertical planter for growing greens in a small spaced partial shade garden !

    I'm very impressed. I didn't think a watermelon plant could support the weight of the melons on a vertical garden.

    I wouldn't have thought of growing mellons vertically… thx

  • MrandMissConverted 5 months ago

    How do you support the watermelons when they become large and heavy? Does their weight ever pose a problem? Thanks!

  • cherukunnucool 5 months ago

    How much area is your farm and how much do you grow in a year

  • howkemon6559 5 months ago

    How is your watermelon grows by now?

  • Rustin Sanders 5 months ago

    I am very interested in verical gardening but I am wondering if growing watermelon on vertical supports is just for the small variety of watermelons. What would keep the weight of the watermelons from from breaking off the vines? I guess this question isn't just for watermelon but pumpkins also.

  • Karen Vaughan 5 months ago

    I have grown squashes up our street trees, in the front tree pits in the sidewalk. The melons or squashes may need support as they get larger.

  • Jefferdaughter 5 months ago

    Wouldn't some kind of natural fiber twine for tying plants be more 'eco-friendly'?

    Great ideas, overall. A very pretty vegetable garden!

  • makezmuzic 5 months ago

    Thank you . I was just wondering what would work. Peace.

  • winnzhang 5 months ago

    maybe when it starts getting too heavy let the plant down?

  • William Ross 5 months ago

    I am trying this year. My thought is that the vine gets as thick as it needs to to support the fruit load. It will need access to the appropriate nutrient, though, which I think is Potassium.

    water melon grown off ground!! what an idea! now the bottom wont get taht dirty ungle color!! I never knew this could even work! well doen on this video

  • buddy tackett 5 months ago

    thank you for showing this it answers alot of questions for me just by watching it

  • spittyfire3 5 months ago

    So what about big variety water melons like Crimson Sweets for example. They can get up to 20+ pounds. Can the vine support that weight? Seems like the melon would break off under it's own weight. Any thoughts on this?

  • strangeseeds 5 months ago

    Great video Patti! What I love alot about your videos is that you show the result of your efforts in the same video, (the effect months later). Most gardening shows will show the viewer how to do something in the here-and-now, but don't "look into the future" to show how successful or how much a failure their instruction turned-out. Love your style and appreciate the effort to stitch all your videos into complete views the way you do.
