When planning your garden, it's important to plan around the sun. Keep an eye on your garden and notice which area receives the most sun. A general rule of thumb is if your plant produces fruit (such as tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and peppers) they need the most sun (8 hours a day). If they are leafy or are root based plants they can tolerate less sun throughout the day. So plan accordingly!

I usually grow sun loving vegetables in pots, that way I can move the pots around as the sun moves throughout the day! I'm sure my neighbors think I'm crazy.Pin It
