Does building orientation matter?
Hello, everyone. I'm considering buying a townhouse in south Stuart, and there are several for sale in the complex I'm considering. My main reason for wanting a townhouse rather than an apartment is to have the courtyard for growing. But most of the ones on the market now just happen to face NW or NE, and I'm wondering how well that's going to work, especially for winter vegetables.
Since I'll be doing containers I'd have some leeway in dragging them around, but I can't help wondering if being on that side is going to be a problem. Currently I face SW, which works fine most of the year, although of course it gets pretty brutal in the summer. My neighbor on the NE side has pretty good luck, but she can plant outside her fence, not in the courtyard itself. (Where I'm looking, that wouldn't be an option.)
