We’ve been having some fun with planting this spring, thanks to Christopher’s interest in gardening (they’re learning about plants at school this month!). Last week, Christopher came home with a lima bean plant and wanted to plant it in the clay behind our garage, along with some apple seeds, so he built himself a makeshift garden and was very excited that he did it all by himself…Well, with a little help from his sister, who diligently brought him rocks for his border 🙂
Christopher has been asking me if we could plant a garden for quite some time now, but I just haven’t put the time into doing it yet. Part of my hesitation has been that our backyard flower beds get almost no sunlight in the course of a day. My understanding is that veggies need lots of sunlight (at least 6 hours a day) in order to thrive. Is this correct? Any gardening experts out there, I would appreciate it if you had some thoughts on this subject!
