Potential shade problem?
Hello all! I am in the Kansas City area (I believe zone 6...) and this is my second year with a big garden. Last year our tomatoes did really well in our raised beds. We decided to expand our garden and added another long raised bed in between our old beds and our privacy fence. I noticed today that the privacy fence is shading the new box (duh moment), and I am a little concerned. Once the plants reach a few feet high they will be tall enough to reach the sunlight that comes over the fence and as there are no trees will receive sunlight most of the day. But until then they will be a bit shaded and I am worried it will bother them in the beginning. My husband mentioned that the sun will move over our yard a bit more as we get into summer, so that might help the situation. Am I worrying for nothing? I am tomato obsessed and love to can them so I'd be a bit heartbroken if they didn't grow very well! I've attached a pic, I stuck a stick in the bed and the "here" shows at what height the light pops over the top of the fence. Hope that makes sense and TIA!
