At last, an innovative solution for urbanites, apartment dwellers, and anyone who wants to grow food in small spaces grow up!  Vertical Vegetables & Fruit shows how easy and fun small-footprint food gardening can be. Low maintenance and big harvests are just two of the benefits of using teepees, trellises, cages, hanging baskets, wall pockets, stacking pots, and multilevel raised beds to grow vegetables and fruit.   Whether your soon-to-be garden is an alley, a balcony, a rooftop, or just a windowsill, master gardener Rhonda Massingham Hart provides expert advice for constructing the site, preparing the soil, and planting and caring for vegetables and fruits to produce a hearty harvest. From beans on a tepee to tomatoes on a wire archway, melons on a slanted fence to cucumbers on a trellis, kiwis on a clothesline to strawberries in a pot, there are simple growing guidelines here to fit every gardener's favorite tastes and site.  For experienced gardeners looking to try new techniques as well as first-time growers with tiny growing spaces, Vertical Vegetables & Fruit is the space-saving, harvest-enhancing guide to producing a bounty of fresh food in any location.

Nice illustrations, a wide variety of plants and vertical growing systems covered, and many helpful tips. However, I was still left feeling that I would need to find a lot more detailed information on many of the techniques and/or that they would require very extensive troubleshooting once applied. Very useful as an idea book to pinpoint techniques worth pursuing further.
