Square Foot Garden: Everyone with 6 square feet of space can create a raised garden bed. Mine is 4x8 ft, and has provided me with several zuchinni, eggplant, mini-peppers, and herbs such as basil and mint! So peaceful to look at and so satisfying to grow your own food.
Vertical growing allows almost any gardener to find a space for melons. There are many advantages of going vertical with your melon vines. Space is the most obvious. What may have engulfed a 10 to 20 foot wide swath through the garden can be trellised to take up no more than a 3 foot wide "footprint" of garden space.
