    Thanks for another great tip John! If anyone’s looking for more ideas on small space gardening for vegetables and other food, check out my channel, thanks!

  2. that’s what Habitat for Humanity has to show people to help them build a better life ? You’re kidding, right ? That’s like the single most pathetic piece of work I have ever seen.

    They are somehow a part of the Welfare system ?

    If that’s all good tax money is getting for people who want a “hand up” not a “hand out” are plants that look like that, no wonder they have to have food stamps !

    More caseworkers needing their azz kicked if ya ask me ! Sorry for the tude but WOW that’s BAD!

  3. I work for habitat restore here in windsor ontario canada – that is awesome!

  5. Thank you for finding the hogwire fence and making a video of it! What a great idea!

  6. every pot needs a wick-like connection to a water source so they be self-watering…

    I suppose you could take the pots out, soak for 5 minutes, stuff them back, twice a day for watering. But that is insanely time consuming in my opinion. Though the idea of growing in pots is nice, my veggies seem to always do better in the ground. I sometimes miss to water a day and the plants in pots really don’t like that too much. LoL

  8. is it really a good Idea if you have to water this setup constently ? sounds like a waste of water.

  9. Great idea,….i wonder if strawberries would do well in this vertical veggie garden,….i heard somewhere they adapt as easily to a potted container as well as to open ground,…thumbs up to ya John and thankin’ ya for another COOL UPLOAD!! = D

  10. …how about larger spaces on the fence…..and really have some fun.?

  11. Id like to try this with the pots hooked up to drip lines. Maybe just use gravel or other hydroponic medium too.

  12. Love your channel John…
    We made up a vertical Grow wall on the weekend using welded mesh & some shade & weed cloth… A great way to grow to save space & use wasted spaces like walls…
    Have a great one…

  13. I am definitely going to use a modified version of this!

  14. I can appreciate the simplicity, but do you think it would be better for a small space to have a terraced trough layout?

  15. That would be a fantastic addition to a greenhouse! Tomatoes, peppers, beens, anything vine like I would think :-)

  16. its a neat idea you could write something in it. but i dont think its very pracrical.
    what about a pyramid where 1 pot drips into 2 and then 4 ect. not exactly the same.

    My only concern is watering would have to be almost constant except in very high humidity/rain areas.

  18. I wish it still sounded like you were saying growing your grains. :P

  19. who cares

  20. looks good but how do you water it??
