From the Book of Home Gardening, 1888: Don’t hide your garden. Remember the saying “out of sight, out of mind”? That’s what happens to a garden that is tucked in a corners of your yard. It gets neglected, forgotten, and will often produce disappointing results. Your garden location should be in full sunlight, away from trees that may steal precious nutrients, and within view of your home, so you can watch it grow. Plants make better use of the morning sun for photosynthesis, rather than the hot afternoon sun.
