This spring, I made an enormous investment money-wise and time-wise building a nice 16x16 fenced garden with raised beds, only to realize this past weekend that I may have placed it too close to the elm trees on my property.
On Saturday while doing yardwork I noticed that I didn't get full sun on the garden until high noon. It only received filtered morning sunlight through the tree branches.
Will my tomato crop be a complete failure? I'm fearing the worst here. I'm going to plant them this week.
The thing I forgot to account for was the weight of the leaves on the elm trees and how it causes the branches to spread out. It looks a lot different now than it did in early March.
