I put plastic grow bags filled with straight potting mix (some Pro-Mix, some homemade 5-1-1) on top of a raised bed. Those plants are generally doing much better than the raised bed a few feet away. Watering is an issue with pots in Florida but since I already had a drip system, I simply replaced the drip tape with individual drippers in each pot. I like the idea about using the potting mix bags as an additional barrier for the nematodes.

I gave up on growing most things in the ground but will now try some non-tomato plants in pots. Also curious what other plants will not be susceptible to the other things we battle little bugs and foliage disease.
