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

  • 1 year ago

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

  • MrandMissConverted 1 year ago

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

  • cherukunnucool 1 year ago

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

  • howkemon6559 1 year ago

    How is your watermelon grows by now?

  • Rustin Sanders 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago

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

  • winnzhang 1 year ago

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

  • William Ross 1 year 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 1 year ago

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

  • spittyfire3 1 year 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 1 year 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.
