Climbing vegetables such as pole beans and cucumbers that will twine up trellises are popular too. Vegetables growing vertically take up less room and make harvesting a breeze. Planters are another way to maximize space. We tuck them around the garden, filling them with herbs and vegetables.
We’ve already planted blueberries, figs, and a couple of muscadine vines and plan to add more fruits over the next few years. As our garden grows, so do the many flavors. This year, try growing a few herbs or vegetables in your backyard. You’ll save money at the grocery store and enjoy the beauty they add to your garden. Plus, it’s rewarding to see tiny plants mature and yield fresh and tasty homegrown produce.
