Maybe watermelon.
There are many things you can use. We use what would be similar to railroad ties, other people use cement blocks and still some which will be me, next year use raised containers They are a bit on the expensive side but are about 36 inches in height so bending is almost non existent. My daughter uses them now due to her bad knees and back. Watermelon might be a little harder to grow, but you can always try.
