@Mary because of lighting. I just moved my trailer here last fall, and from what I was thinking where I wanted to put the garden would get sun, just not right at the peak time of day because of the shadow from the trailer. From what she said, the stuff she has planted the same place in relation to her trailer (they are set the same directions and everything) doesn't get enough light to do well unless it is stuff that doesn't need much sun. Considering that is where I was thinking of for my veggies like tomatoes and such that need the sun, it wouldn't be good from what people have told me(I should say, my style of gardening is generally, listen to the people that know more than I do, and if it comes up, good, if not, change something next year).
I would like to walk back there and look again, but don't feel like walking through the sloppy snow. Her garden area on that end of the house is up against the house now. I think what I might do is just try to get it closer to the fence at the back of the lot and go in a line rather than closer to the house. I was planning on doing 4 4ftx4ft squares in a square. One green beans, one carrots, and 2 for assorted veggie stuffs, and I had something else I was thinking of doing before carrots. I wouldn't do that much, but I would like to can, and last year I couldn't manage to get enough stuff in for a meal at once, much less to can anything. So I think if I can get out there to measure, what I could do is put the 4ftx4ft squares in a line about a mower width out from the naked ladies I planted along the fence row, and it would span about halfway across the lot, but I don't think the sun would be an issue at that point.
