I'm trying to plan my garden for next year. I am going to have a 20 ft long side that will be 1 1/2 feet wide - it's going to be all trellis (tom, cucs, beans, watermelon, pumpkin, and peppers). I'm trying to determine where to put that. Mel's book says to trellis on the North side of the boxes. Why?
Is it THAT important? I know I don't want the trellis to shade veggies that might not need shaded...but I'm thinking about putting that at the East or the West (probably) end...would it be a big deal? If I put it on the west it would be the evening sun that would be shaded and only a bit maybe - I think the tree might get it before the trellis.
TIA for any help you can give me on this.
