» What are you eating from your garden today?

I moved to my new home in the Central Valley, last June. Set up sq. ft garden with some success. Herbs did well, Japanese eggplant, and the Italian green peppers were ridiculous. Tomatoes and zucchini not so good. An experienced friend pointed out, it's all about location and timing. Soo, plan to relocate boxes to the unshaded side of the yard and start early. Wish me luck.

Welcome. Look forward to seeing how your garden grows.
Hello...Welcome...and yes, of course, Good Luck!!alycesuzanne wrote:Wish me luck. Al
Fresno has a bit drier climate than we have here in Modesto but overall we grow the same things.
Your friend was right about the location...sunshine is best! You can always add a shade cloth over the top to protect during the heat of the day in mid Summer...but ya just can't point that sunshine!
Great to have you here!

Welcome and it sounds like a good plan tomatoes are sun lover to be sure. Herbs do enjoy afternoon shade if it gets hot there in that part of CA
