I've been lurking around here for a few weeks now, and seeing as I sowed my cukes today, I thought I better ask this one. This is my first year getting a bit serious about my vegetable garden (I mean, rather than just sticking some seeds in the ground and hoping for the best ) and so I'm trying to utlilize my space the best. I was thinking of doing cukes, watermelon, rockmelon and maybe pumpkins in pots and growing them up the fence. However the fence poles are pretty thick, maybe 2-3cms in diameter. I was thinking of putting some garden twine up horizontally...will this work or will I have problems?
Also, today I realized the truth in the idea that tomatoes will grow just about anywhere...whilst pottering round the garden this afternoon I saw something sticking out of the lawn. I wandered over, and lo and behold, there were maybe half a dozen tomato seedlings, the tallest standing about 15cm and not looking all too unhealthy. The 'lawn' is maybe 2 by 6m and pretty much dedicated to the dogs waste. I have 2 medium size dogs...so there's a fair bit of it. I occasionally give them the tops of tomatoes when they're bugging me in the kitchen, so I figure these must have gone in one end and out the other...and they're doing better than the lawn
