less sun in garden now

namastemomiApril 10, 2010

I have a problem - I have had a veggie garden for many years - in the same spot - Over the years the trees have grown taller and we seem to be getting less sun. I have already put out my veggies etc. and there is no other place to have it. Right now I am timing full sun from 10-2, the rest of the time it is mottled shade. My son said that the sun will get higher in the sky as we move toward the solstice. He thinks we should get more sun then. What do you think? PS cutting down the trees is a last resort.

Can you just 'limb up' the trees, which is cutting off the very bottom branches, even thinning out the canopy, which I do every year to some of my trees? That may give you just enough sun.
