"Planting a garden on the moon" - or, on rock cropping

Everyday we are more and more people on the planet.
The planet though is not getting any bigger.
Here on the rocky and steep mountain side,
the agriculture surface area
is being created for the last + 500 years. 
Here we see some results.

 Small terraces built on a steep ridge rock outcrop slope.
This place has a microclimate, good cold air drainage, 
heat storage on the rocks released during the night.
Ideal for early Spring and late Winter seeding or planting.
