The Carroll County Grow It Eat It Team will practice vertical growing this growing season. Pictured above is just one example of the test. You can see the vertical trellis built to support climbing cucumbers. Also pictured is a five gallon bucket with small holes punctured in the bottom. The bucket is placed between tomato plants. By filling the bucket with water, the plants receive slow but constant hydration (a must for successful tomato crops).
