I've started a vegetable garden this year. It's the first year one has been planted back there in many years. I hope the ground will be well conditioned, considering how long it has sat without being tilled. Either way I will find out what can be grown this year and what won't grow in certain areas. There isn't much space for the sun to fall on the ground at very long intervals during the day. So, next year I may have to plant the rows across instead of straight up and down. At least I'll know where the sun hits longer during the day. Many of the plants need at least 8 hours of sun to grow properly and produce.
