This one shows the cabbage and some of the vertical structures, which I use for anything that will climb! That really maximizes production, since my garden area is very small. My first year I grew things too close to the cedar fence, and they suffered from lack of sun and air, and were difficult to harvest. This year I have made the closest 15" to the fence a non growing area- I just pulled soil away and laid down roofing shingles. For those who would be concerned about chemicals possibly in the shingles, they are on top of plastic, and are lower than the roots of the plants.(the 4th photo was a repeat- not necessary!)
