The wall of our garage (see photo) gets a lot of summer sun from mid-morning to sunset. In fact, the bricks get quite warm and radiate heat after the sun goes down. I have room for a small SFG box (maybe a 2x4 or 2x5)  on the grass next to the sidewalk (behind the Table Top).  I'm thinking I could build a trellis that would go up from the box and then across to attach to the wall.  If I moved the Table Top I would have room for a larger box alongside the walkway. I think this would be a good place for trellising squash, or beans or tomatoes. I promised myself I would not go crazy this year with expanding the veggie garden but I can't help myself. Feedback welcomed.

Today Feb.13 I started some Leeks and Onions indoors.  They are warming up on the new heat mat. I filled the pots with wet potting mix, sowed the seeds, topped them off with fine vermiculite, and sprayed them with water.

Are your summers gentle enough for a south facing red brick wall? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying it. I already have it designed for you. rofl

It does get quite hot at the wall in the few weeks of peak summer that we get here. However, the vertical part of the trellis and the new SFG bed will be 3 to 4 feet away from the wall in about the same position as the legs on the left side of the Table Top. I can't wait to see your design.  bounce

You know a squash arch over that walk way attached to the roof line would be rather pretty and squash would love the warmth.

That was my thinking as well.
