Gardening on a hill
We live on a hill. It's never really been much of an issue for us before because we've always had either a small garden or just done raised beds/containers. But this year for some reason, DH decided to get ambitious and had a neighbor plow up a pretty big garden area. So the garden goes downhill from east to west, and on the west side next to us is a brushfield with some trees right along the proprty line (so we will be putting up an electric fence, too.) I'm not good with measuring angles, but it's a very noticable drop. Should we run our rows east-west or north-south? And what should be uphill and what down - we are going to plant cabbage and broccoli this week, then Memorial Weekend we will be planting bush beans, squashes (bushy types, not vining), cherry tomatoes, and corn.
Thanks so much,
