I will get a vertical hydroponic system put together in April and see if I can grow veggies. I have a small garden area and it’s not big enough for regular veggie growing. There is also a large deck out there and that takes a large amount of the space. Going vertical will be easier for me since bending over again and again to the ground is bad news for my lower back.

I’m starting off with 10 vertical pots and if that is successful, I’ll add another 10.

I’m a newby gardener, and had not heard of vertical gardening before. I looked it up and found this:

Thanks for bringing up the concept. This sounds neat! Keep us apprised of your progress with it, if you would!
