What we have had great luck with is the squash and gourds that we planted along the garden fence. These caught hold of the fence wires and climbed high to safety. Now our garden fence is decorated with fruit of varying sizes and ripeness.
Root plants such as carrots, radishes, beets, onion and garlic have given us a good harvest.
This Spring, Becky added a row of ever-bearing strawberries to the strawberry patch and much to my surprise, they have started their second harvest (in August!)
