Ideas for Maximizing Food Production on In-Town Lots
One way to maximize your food production on a small in town lot is growing vegetables and fruit that can be trained up a trellis. Many different foods can be grown this way. Small winter squash, vining summer squash, beans, tomatoes, peas, small melons, and cucumbers all are excellent for this. On the heavier melons and winter squash you will have to support them or they will pull off the vine before maturity. There are many varieties though that are small enough, even in the water melons, to grow this way. Here are some pics. I am planning to do much of my gardening this way so I'll keep you posted!
