Choosing a community garden plot

tomatotomataApril 24, 2012

I posted this over in the Community Garden forum, but no response. Maybe someone here can help.

I have the chance to select a plot in a new community garden. What attributes should I consider? By that I mean, should I try to be west of the other plots? Away from the road? In the middle? On the edge?

My concerns: I want to have a successful garden (so I don't want to be shaded by another plot), but I also want to be a good neighbor (so I don't shade their plot).

The whole garden is flat and unshaded, so maybe there is no advantage to any particular spot. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'd pick the plot closest to the water source.
