After years of wanting to turn this area into a vegetable garden, patience paid off. The stone matches existing walls. Four vegetable boxes are offset from the pergola, which is there to provide some shade to tomatoes during our interminable summers. Three pots already there but hidden in the growth were employed along the prime axis, with one centered between the boxes. The undulating wall has shrines built into it, and, past the five-foot-wide shorty of a gate, the mortared hinge column becomes a true dry-stacked wall that tapers to the ground. First pair, before and after. A fig will be the backdrop once it has a few years of growth.
