You can plant on berms but then they dry out too fast in the summer.

I never thought of berms. This will be the first year in that area. The main garden has poor drainage too but not that bad. It has rained a lot and ground is pretty saturated. My property is fill soil from when they leveled out the land for the neighborhood. Also it is thick clay. I had hoped it would be better soil due to the area being part of the field that is behind my property but the top soil has not built up since they leveled it. I was also thinking of digging down farther then back filling with compost but that makes my back hurt just thinking about.
