We've got three 4x16' raised garden beds at our house. My family enjoys growing squash and other sprawling vines, but the problem is that they take up so darned much space in the garden. One way around that is to grow them upward along a trellis instead of sideways.

Geothermal heat & hot water
geothermal heat pump to heat the house because it's dirt cheap (no pun intended) to operate, and with the government incentives currently in place, it's not all that much more expensive to install than a traditional furnace & A/C. I had heard rumors that it could also be used to provide "free hot water." Since heating water can use anywhere from 20-30% of a home's annual utility bill, reducing this cost can have a significant impact on a home's operational cost. I wanted to share what I found about that.
