Need some help planting tomatoes

wvubeermanApril 21, 2013

The north side of my garden butts up against the fence. I plan on making a trellis to weave my maters. But I am scared that I will not have room in front or back to harvest tomatoes during the season. I thought about putting some okra or egg plant in front of the tomatoes, but I am looking for some other ideas. I plan on posting a diagram of what I am thinking before I plant, but wanted to see if I am thinking in the right direction

I did the very same thing - my tomato trellis was against a wall with just a few inches to spare. I didn't have any problems. As the tomatoes grew, I tied them on the trellis or wove them through. Since the raised bed was 4 feet wide, I was able to reach in from either side.
