When I think of the space we have available to grow food, I like to think not only in terms of square feet but also in terms of cubic feet. By maximizing our use of vertical space, we dramatically increase the productivity of our small garden. In this video, I share some examples of what we’re growing vertically in our cubic foot garden.

    nice job ,,thank you for the information is very good and i am to try for sure.i am a new gardener i want all the information possible to get my garden the best for me.thank you again …!

  • Om nom nom! More! I love my chaos garden but next year I'm going vertical. Probably still chaotically mixed but much more productive and easy to harvest. Love your tomato techniques especially, it will allow me to switch focus to learning other crops next year while still experimenting with a large variety of tomatoes. I wish hot peppers grew as an indeterminate climber. Would they espalier? I'm looking to maximize staple crop production next year. Amaranth, winter squash, runner beans, glass gem corn (planted enough this year for plenty of seed for next year at least, hopefully adapted a bit to my area). Thinking that weeds like dandelion, lamb's quarters, purslane, and chickweed would be the best for winter microgreens. Got a little tomato to ripen in a window in January in VT. Can't wait to get more pro and experienced, got a nice long winter coming to watch your videos and of a few others and go through the Baker Creek seed catalog a thousand times in pure joy.

    That is a huge space bump. I got figure this out for next season. You have such awesome ideas! Thanks! I was asking my girlfriends if I could plant in their yards, now I won't need to. What a magnificent idea!

    Thanks for the video. I am planning to grow melons vertically, but I am a bit concerned about the weight of the melons breaking the vines. Do you have any suggestions?

    You are doing great things within the limitations you have (yard size, zone, sun levels); the sign of a true artist, to transcend your constraints. Always impressed and inspired by what you have going on.

    As always, I enjoyed watching every videos you've posted. Job well done my friend

    Ever try using tomato clips? They are super quick and reusable. For larger stems they don't work well, the ones I use have a 1" diameter (I think) and are holding three 8 foot tall indeterminite cherry tomatoes to a trellis.

  • eveny119 6 months ago

    The tomatoes look amazing, you posted they were sweet 1 million, but these look larger than cherry type, or is it just the angle? I don't have a standard vegetable trellis but I grow up the sides of my pergola. I have flowers like morning glories and moonflowers. I have hanging baskets that are filled this year with beans and peas. I have a gourd and sugar pumpkin growing up each side. and my tomato stakes are anchored to the top of the pergola.  This makes for a nice cool shady spot for me.

    Hi Patrick, It's amazing how through the years you develop better ways of space in your garden, I think this is much better way than just buying bigger land. By the way do you have any of your favourite and tried companion plants with brassicas ?
