Methods to grow up, up, up
So in the tiny world of community gardening, vertical growing is very important to me (and my yield). So this year, there'll be no bush beans, just pole. And non-vining cucurbits are out: our melons, squash, and cukes will be going up concrete reinforcing wire. Tomatoes? 6 - 10 feet tall concrete reinforcing wire cages. Herbs will be corraled by those laughable round-with-stakes tomato cages, as will peppers, or some other way to make them go up, up, up!
In a plot that is 14 by 18 feet, in cinderblock raised beds with 220 square feet of growing space, this summer we will have:
4 summer squash, 1 cucumber, 2 watermelon, and 1 melon on 'humps' of braced wire concrete reinforcing wire
4 - 6 peppers, mostly bell, in cages
3 different kinds of beans, succession plantings, up a 6' trellis
6 - 8 kinds of tomato plants in huge cages
late-maturing winter crops until the summer crops take over
Garlic and radishes in the cinderblock's holes
Interplanted herbs, flowers, and pollinator attractants (nasturtums, pennyroyal, marigolds, hyssop, queen anne's lace, etc.)
So I guess we mostly use constructed wire cages and wire trellises. What do you use?
