I had a discussion with a couple of guys about growing watermelons vertically. This is something I would love to try but I don’t think I will be able to this year. The wind blew my fence over in my back yard and it will need to get replaced. I know that there will be people working in the back so I don’t want to set something up that I will have to move away from where it is trellised. I’ll see how it goes. If I can’t get these going, maybe I can do pumpkins which I would start in July anyway.
Here are a couple of examples of other people growing melons off the ground. If you want to share this idea, please press the “like” button below the video clips or the button to tweet it. Thanks.
