planning a garden in my shady yard

scottoriousMarch 21, 2013

I am "blessed" to have 3 very large maples on my half acre lot. It leaves me a small area for a garden that gets full sun. This year we want to take our garden to the next level but find that we may just have too many trees. One tree is not doing well and should most likely come down. Is it against the spirit of gardening to cut trees down to have a vegetable garden?

Now why would it be against the spirit of gardening to remove a sick tree? A gardener arranges things the way he wants them. Sometimes that involves removing a tree and sometimes that involves planting a tree.

Remove the tree and plant your vegetable garden
