We love to have a garden but we live in a neighborhood of ancient old trees where it is a job to find a sunny spot to plant a garden. We have a spot about 15' x15' square and we have planted 10 tomato plants, 5 cabbages, a hill of squash and a hill of cucumbers as well as 2 rows of onions and 3 assorted peppers!!
We also have several containers of herbs, radishes and lettuce. We are still planting and also plan a sunflower garden should the rain subside.
