Vertical Structures for the small footprint- the idea behind the vertical planting was to illustrate creative ways to work with space limitations.  We started with the rain gutter trial, which is fine for lettuces, micro-greens and some herbs.

Strawberries are a great example of a fruit you really want to grow yourself or buy organic.  Because strawberries have a large root system and like to stay cool…the rain gutters wouldn’t be a good idea.  So, we had to fabricate our own vertical planter baskets with some wire, posts, and staples.  It worked out very nicely…though I will line baskets with a heavy mil plastic to avoid drying out in the summer months.
