|Being disabled, and taking care of my mom, going out and dealing with a vegetable garden, including putting up a roll up plastic fencing, I just don't have the energy, since I decided to put the energy I have, in planting things for my mom...BUT, I'm trying a "hanging garden" with green beans, tomato's, cucumbers and maybe even squash.
So far, growing everything from the seeds in what I produced last year, the green beans are all I have gotten hanging, and the tomato seedlings are canceling out the weakest, so I use the strongest.
This should be interesting, but it will save on water, won't get eaten by bugs and slugs on the ground and I'm hoping for a bountiful crop, in my small hanging garden.
Any idea's? (We are starting to get rid of a lot of things/downsizing to a much smaller house and yard, because my mind knows what I can do....but my body isn't willing any more).

|I think a hanging veggie garden is an awesome idea! I've heard of upside down tomatoes and I have grown dwarf tomatoes in hanging baskets (right side up ). I can't imagine why cucumbers, squash and peppers wouldn't do just as well.
