Bush Pickle Fence
I am working with a small area for zucchini and bush pickles. Because of space and being allergic to the zucchini leaves, I will attempt to "stake up" the zucchini to better grab the fruit without reaching and searching. I will transplant bush pickles next to a 6' fence facing north/south. Question: Does it matter which side of the fence to transplant the pickles? I've read that the zucchini should face south - is it true for pickles as well? Thanks for your prompt response.

South facing is considered to be best for most plants due to the fact that Southern light is considered to be optimal light. But, really, as long as they are getting 6 hours of light, they will grow just fine.
