This is the only area I have in my yard for vegetable gardening. Since we live in the wonderful Pacific Northwest and our house is on an average neighborhood sized lot I am challenged a little with lack of a good sunny location. I have been able though to grow quite a few things in this little garden of mine. It does get a lot of afternoon sun but very little morning sun. The big yellow containers are called Trugs and I have 3 of them. I love them and since I am up there in years it helps to save the knees and back.
