Here comes the sun, but it’s alright I didn’t cut down all the trees. I blogged about this earlier and today I finally took action. There was a clump of maple trees that were blocking out the late-day sun. This time of year the sun was going behind the trees around 4:00 and my vegetable beds were missing out on at least three hours of good direct sunlight due to a clump of tall spindly maples that had grown from an old stump. I felt they should go so that my beds could get more sun. I had no special affinity for these maples, but still it is always kind of sad to cut down trees. In the end I couldn’t bring myself to cut down all of them so I left one standing. As you can see from the photos below this should bring a lot more sun to the garden.
