Q.I Keep Reading About Planning My Vegetable Garden Layout North To South. And Taller Plants On The West. The Problem Is We Have A S
hed that shades most of the East-south side of the garden in the morning. I’m afraid planting my corn on the north or west side w ill shade smaller plants because of this. So is planting corn on the south- east side better? We’re growing some other taller plants as well like beans, and I plan on bringing melons up on a bamboo trellis. We have a small 340sq ft space for our garden. No where else to put it.

No, the sun will remain, either, directly East to West, or slightly favoring the South. During the Winter, this will deepen to where the sun sits, mostly, in the Southern sky moving from East to West.
Even on the North side the taller plants will not be able to shade the smaller plants.
