    You want the trellises on the north side of the box, so that the plants don’t shade out everything else in the box.

    I think you’ll like the raised beds. That’s what I did in our backyard, because it was all graveled over, and things do stay really neat and tidy. Even if it’s a bit of a mess within the box, the garden overall never looks messy.

    I still haven’t come up with a good tomato support system. I’m thinking pounding in some long heavy-duty metal fencing stakes and then getting a panel of cattle mesh (or whatever it’s called–super stiff wire mesh with openings about 6×6″) tied between them.

    After this baby arrives, I can start thinking about planting & planning my garden. I’d like to put in some fruit trees this year. I did fruit bushes last year and we’ll see how many survived the winter–at least they have a 1-year guarantee and free replacement if they don’t live.

    Our garden was all in ground, but this year we are planning to build several raised beds…whenever the snow melts! :)
