Since I purchased a copy of "Gardening by the Square Foot," Ron has been working obsessively on transforming our former hopelessly-horizontal garden into a vertical wonderland. It's a sight to behold and definitely a much better use of space. Tomatoes, beans, four kins of squash (summer and winter), sweet potatoes, honeydews, peppers, eggplants, onions, and more are all growing happily. More transformations are sure to come--including a major overhaul in the spring (which he's doubtless spend all winter planning . . . he even mentioned a potential garden diorama!).
