I'm attempting to maximize the space usage in my vegetable garden this year.

I added more trellises in order to do more vertical gardening.
I also plan to hang some potted peppers from the top of the trellises.

One side of my vegetable garden is next to a chain link fence. I plan to grow cucumbers up the chain link fence. We'll see what happens. Right now I have radishes growing where the future cucumber plants will be. It's too cold here yet to set out cuke plants. So basically I'm using the same growing space for two different things based on when it's best to grow them. Radishes during the cool spring temps, and cukes during the warmer summer temps.

Any other ideas for maximizing vegetable gardening space or crop sequencing to use the same growing space ?
