We're almost back to normal here after our few days away and it was time to take stock of our garden and see if we could use any more space for growing vegetables.
After a couple of nights thinking about it (when I can't sleep), the answer came to me, the side of the house down the driveway. We have only used this for ornamental things due to needing to get into the car once it is out of the garage. We do have quite a long drive so realised if the passenger got out before this part of the driveway, all would be well.
Here is the space (14' of it) with plants (some now dead after the long, hard winter) still in place.
We then measured 1 1/2 foot spaces along the top of the wall and he drilled and screwed in some hooks (managed to get 10 into this space). I hope to grow one half with tomatoes, the other half with climbing beans, then change them over each year.
I know, I know, you are not supposed to grow this close to the wall (west facing by the way) but I have a cunning plan to stop it getting too dry. Along the back on top of the soil, will run a long piece of guttering with small holes drilled into it facing the plants plus two end stops. I will fill that up with water and it can slowly drain and water them - hopefully. Time will tell.
