A question for you all! I'm new to this forum so I apologize in advance if I've done anything wrong with regards to this post. I realize there is already a lot of advice on the forum about where to put a veggie garden. However, I'm completely new to gardening so I'm worried about choosing my garden's spot without any advice given to me specifically. So, obviously, the question is:
Where should I put my garden?
Here are some things you probably need to know:
-I'm being ambitious because I want to jumpstart my gardening years! And you can't talk me out of it (maybe..)
-I live in Central Texas and I intend to grow throughout the summer
-I want to grow a vertical garden using containers
-I have extremely limited space
-I can only grow in the front yard + I live in a less than secure neighborhood so I want my garden back from the street.
-Most likely planting tomatoes, okra, pole beans, eggplant, and other heat lovers with the ability to climb
-The knowledge I have about gardening I gained in the last two days from a "___ for Dummies" book and Google searches.
Below is a view of the duplex I live in and spots for my garden. The spot circled in red is my preferred spot (close to water and somewhat hidden). The second spot (circled in blue) is the other choice I picked out after noticing my chosen spot was covered in the house's shadow.
