Lauren has written asking about supports for her square foot garden, here is her question:
I'm new to blogging, and love what you are doing with your site. I have a question about the square foot garden. What types of supports do you like for heavy pumpkins and squash that can take up a lot of room? My garden space is about 4x10 and part of an urban organic garden. Any suggestions that you have would be greatly appreciated. I know it's early, but I'm so excited to start in the spring. Click here to see a picture of her garden.
Lauren, in my garden I have used 3 bamboo poles that I sunk into the dirt as far as I could and then tied at the top. I place one plant at the bottom of each pole and tie the vine up the pole as it grows. I have grown winter squash, pumpkins and melons in this manner. Click here for that article. In another article about peas, there is a diagram showing a few other options. Click here for that article. And now lastly, but surly not leastly, click here for a great video Dale put together about the trellis he made.
Does anyone have any other suggestions? Leave a comment if you do!
