Vertical vegetable gardening isn't intuitive. Although some vegetables, such as tomatoes and pole beans, have been grown vertically for a very long time, it is only recently that gardeners who are short on space have looked to vertical methods and structures for growing vegetables that traditionally have been thought to require a lot of horizontal space. Vertical Vegetable Gardening provides information on growing all types of leafy, root, and other vegetables vertically, saving space, protecting from insects, and making harvesting easier. Now people living in urban areas can grow produce that used to require sizable plots of land. Also included are ideas and plans for vertical structures.

This little book has really outdone itself. Chris McLaughlin, in a completely charming and unassuming way, has schooled me on my small-space gardening methods. Though she is a Master gardener, she keeps it simple for those of us with thumbs that may or may not be green, depending on which light you are standing in. Speaking of which, the 'Caveman Sun Blueprint' has really, seriously changed my life and how I will attack my garden-planning this spring. Her easy-to-construct, space-challenged, vertical gardening techniques are also definitely going to be implemented in that same plan of attack, as I live on a frustratingly tight, suburban lot. I could go on and on, because I took away so many little nuggets of wisdom and innovation that my copy of the book is sporting a full petticoat of Post-it note annotations. In a nutshell, I highly, highly recommend this book!
I have learned so much about how to use the small space I have for the maximum benefit of my family. And I am learning new ways to grow vegetables I never thought about growing vertically. Remember to check out companion plants to best use your growing area. And you can make your own vertical structures to save money and if you design them so they can fold up you can store them for next year's use as well.
I was expecting to see info on how to tend to vertical grown vegetables such as pruning back etc like you see in the videos on U tube from gardeners who are growing almost everything vertically in small plots or raised beds, so I was disappointed that it only gave info about what could be grown vertically. The info it provided was good just more basic than my needs.
