Recently when I posted the pics about our Raised Bed Garden Reveal I had a few readers to ask me to share a little bit more about the trellises we put in at the end of the garden. I love these trellises and for us they were to be mult-function for one they can hold hanging pots, but they also have rope strung on them to grow squash, green beans, peas, and now we even have cucumbers growing up them! Yes that is our burn barrel you spy in the back of the picture and it is pulled out often this time of year to clean up the yard.
These trellises have added an entirely new dimension to our gardening adventures for one we are able to use them for about two or three of the garden beds and we can double our food production because we can get more growth out of our vegetables.
For years I have wanted to do more vertical gardening and now we finally have our opportunity. My husband made these trellises out of limbs from our Bradford Pear Tree which he is wanting to replace this fall with a peach tree we recently purchased. Our goal as you know is to have a suburban homestead that is truly representative of perma- culture. Click here to read my blog post “Is Your Garden An Edible Arrangement?”.
I hope you try your hand at some vertical gardening too it is truly so amazing to see how much more production you can get from your garden and what a space saver it is as well. By the way behind my husband is the Bradford Pear Tree that he used to make these trellises. So for now the tree still stands he just pruned the tree and used some of the low limbs.
Also I cannot believe it is Saturday once again and time for The Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post Ed. No. 25 and my last day of work for the school year is Monday and I am so excited because we are going to be making our very first batch of “Kombucha” and we may also try our hand at kefir too this summer! Also my canning season is just getting started so lots coming up! I hope you link up this week I cannot wait to hear what you are up too.
