New garden site, wanting your thoughts
I am facing ESE while taking this picture. I am renting a sod cutter to remove the grass and putting down cardboard for additional weed coverage, there is a tree stump from an old apple tree, the space is about 24' x 40' I am wanting to utilize the fence for vertical growing of cucumbers, and possibly zucc and squash (although i don't know of anyone that has done this). The other side of the fence has about 18" of growing space that i can use, do I want to plant something tall like sunflowers there later in the season for shade, or a climber like nasturtiums? I have had a serious aphid problem in the past so I am torn about Nasturtiums. I am getting my soil tested this week. I have a greenhouse so the sky is the limit, and that is what I am aiming for, haha. Any suggestions on planting order or other tips?
