First, let me explain why I decided to go vertical while gardening in 2019. The 2017 gardening season was not a good one for me because the deer, rabbits and groundhogs thought my work was for them.
They ate all the green tomatoes, okra, beans and corn. They generally left the squash and cucumbers alone. I didn’t have enough left to harvest, let alone put aside for winter. I hoped 2018 would be a better gardening year.
