Trellis on a wall: edible landscaping

I recently had a request from a new homeowner: she had a wall where she wanted to screen an unsightly view, and wanted to grow something edible there. What would I recommend?  I thought I would post the results of my research. Understand that she lives in Zone 8 and is dealing with sandy & clay soils.

Sunny Location:
Recommendations Maypop (Passion Fruit) and Scarlet Runner Beans.


Growing Your Own Fruits & Vegetables

Growing your own fruits & vegetables is a process of urban agriculture, suburban gardening, or small farming of food for non-commercial use; including everything from windowsill herb gardens to small, self-sustaining farms. It can be a form of permaculture or organic gardening – or may involve the use of small-scale chemicals & fertilizers.
