I was given this same one for Christmas year before last and I absolutely adore it. By far the most used tool in my garden. It still looks amazing, too, and is still sharp, after all this time and use !!

It is lovely, but after my experience, I would never ever plant it on purpose. And I would put it in my will not to, either! Even the "not invasive" varieties can be very difficult to keep under control. We just bought our first home and I spent months trying to reclaim our yard from it. So much work.  It had been neglected for only a few months, and had obviously only been planted in two spots along a fence. Had I known I'd be pulling it out from all over yard probably forever, I would've offered less on the house LOL (but seriously, though)

What a nice space,  and full sun! Excellent! You can grow all kinds of things. I had a big container garden in our rental for years.  You can have different layers in a container garden, just like if you were designing an in the ground permacture garden. For your tree layer, there are lots of dwarf fruit trees that do well in containers, as well as fruiting bushes and cane fruits. Look for the container-growing varieties!! You'll get much higher yields with much less input this way.  I didn't do that the first couple years,  learned the hard way LOL I got great results using homemade self watering containers I built using the same food grade buckets a previous poster mentioned. Got them free for the asking from a local restaurant. Just search you tube or Internet,  there's lots of great how-tos to make them. Super easy,  too. And for worms,  you can make a worm bin on the cheap from 2 large Rubbermaid bins, and let it live in a shady spot outside. Best of luck to you in your garden
