I'm growing lettuce in an old wheel-less wheelbarrow. It's done well. It's up high enough to avoid ground-dwelling pests, plus I hypothesize that other pests don't notice it.

Just about everything in my yard, including containers, is intended to attract pollinators and birds, especially hummers. I try to use California native plants whenever possible.

I also have veggies in my formal flower beds! I grew a successful lettuce crop as a front border plant and now have tomatoes in with the larkspur and zinnias.
I have started a new gardening podcast called The Charleston Gardener. Go to www.gocharlestongardener.com to subscribe and hear my first episodes. Will be doing one on vegetables as soon as I can get my busy grower friend to find time for an interview.
