The soil in my area is clay that swells and retracts. You'd think nothing would grow here. But this used to be agricultural land where orchards and bean fields grew well, so it's not impossible to cultivate--just challenging.

I grow anything native, anything nostalgic for me, anything that looks like it needs rescuing. So, things get a little crowded around here. This year, the only vegetable I put in is tomato vines. I let them grow up inside metal cages, and by June we are having salad.
