John shows how he has made the most of his back yard fence a redwood fence the neighbors erected. He first put reed fencing to make it look more pleasant, and then uses nylon net trellis material to grow winter squash, summer squash, cucumbers and melons.

    Hey John! I am glad I found another great video of yours! I was thinking I was going to run out of space quick in my raised bed. I never knew you can grow squash and melons vertically!

    Cool movies… Supper inspiring. That is the best space saving technique ever… Wow. I started growing vertically .First time gardening. That would be so cool, if you subscribed to my channel : ) Any how. TX.

    How is the plant on the trellis now?
    Do they keep on growing, or all dead?

  • oceanluv88 1 year ago

    that shouldn't be a problem unless you save the seeds. This years fruit will not be affected.

    John do you have a suggestion on keeping away squash (stink) bugs?

    Thanks, John. There is NO excuse for the people that say they have no room when people see this video. Anyone can grow vertical, if they choose to, no matter where they live. I remember once many years ago I put a sweet potato in a glass of water and I vined it on fish line, all over my kitchen. It was really refreshing and pretty. After awhile I put it in dirt in a pot on the window sill because the potato started to rot. The plant continued growing in my well lit, semi humid kitchen. Fun stuff

    John, I have cantaloupe vines running in the garden and they are doing well however one of my vine with the most melon growing on it broke. Can I graft it or can I simply stick the broken vine in water?

    Please advise. This is my first experience with melons so I'm still learning.

    I've set up something similar to this. But I read somewhere that cucumbers and melons shouldnt be grown in the same bed because they can cross-pollinate. Has anybody heard of this?

    I can not find nylon trellis where do you get yours

  • 1danilou 1 year ago

    How much space do you have at the bottom? I love this idea. At first I was thinking oh yay I can fit this in my current 10 x 2 raised bed, but actually it looks like I could probably just put a smaller one somewhere else. I have zero yard but I have maybe a foot of space around my apartment. Thanks for the great video!

    It is my personal opinion that you should be the state of California's official city-garden coordinator. But I guess California needs more city gardens first, eh?

    the Greeks take the flowers you spoke of wash them, chop them up & add them to scrambled eggs, they give a nice flavor to your morning meals. My mom used to make small egg pancakes out of the mixture & we'd gobble them up. Try it I know you'll love it 🙂
