I do all my gardening above ground, in a mix of pots and colors. It actually works quite well, and the wall is a great wind block. This year tomatoes, jalapenos, herbs. I haven't had luck with zucchini or squash above ground, never can find the bush varieties. But, if I do, I will try again. We are trying some in ground red onions. Not sure on those.
So here it is planted, and looking a little sparse. It is greener since this pic was taken, and I plan on putting in some shredded mulch, just until the bermuda can grow back after the last ground squirrel attack.
