I moved home this summer to live with my parents due to financial difficulty, and they’ve given me the go ahead to rip up their backyard in the spring to start growing food for our friends and family. I’m turning the swing set my younger brother and sister have outgrown into a trellis of sorts, making a huge wire fence arch over the beams that supported the swings and monkey bars. I need lots of vines to fill this huge space! Very excited to learn and teach my family more about growing plants for our dinner table.
