I put portulaca and some marigolds in the containers I cut from plastic juice cartons and threaded them onto the trellis stakes. They are supported by the cross beams. All the plants seem to like the arrangement and the portulaca is kept under control.
The little purple flower and the vines behind the container are the asparagus yardlong beans. I have them woven into the trellis and running across the back. We have already harvest some of them. We ate some last evening and froze what we didn't eat.
Here is a view of the west side. If you look closely you can see some gypsy peppers forming on the far left just above the marigolds. I planted two batches of marigold in two of the large tubs. The very broad leaves i the blue bed are Fairy Tales eggplant. You can't see the blossoms but there are a lot of them. Behind the eggplants are poblano peppers which are also doing very well and should produce nicely (knock on wood). The tallest plant in that bunch is an Ichiban eggplant in a converted Tidy Cat tub just like the one on the ground on the far right.
All of these plants are producing well though the heat has been a bit hard on them. I have commented before that our patio is an oversized oven that runs between 5 and 10 degrees above the official temps. I think we touched 90 officially yesterday but the patio thermometer registered 98.
