I am new to the vegetable gardening scene but have done some larger scale farming for wildlife (beans, corn, etc...). I have been browsing on here for a while and I am excited about getting my garden started. I am located in North MS (zone 8 ). I need some pointers on the best place to start my garden with the space I have. The picture below may be hard to see but hopefully it's enough to get an idea of my situation. We have two large dogs that I'm afraid will tear up the garden if I put it inside the fence but if that's the best option I may could put up wire fencing around it. I would like to start out with maybe just a 8' x 8' raised bed or something close to that. My initial idea was to put it just East of the house, between the house and the tree line but it may not get enough sun there. I am open to any suggestions. Please feel free to ask me questions if needed to understand my situation better. Thanks for any help you can give.
