8 years ago I chose the location of my garden based on two factors. The first being that a house was demolished years ago on one end of the property, so I wanted to put it far away from any hidden debris and avoid the clay that was turned up during the demolition. The second, was that my hose had to reach. In the end I really didn't have much choice where it went. I had no idea that I had to take into consideration the trees growing near my garden. I found out, however, after a crappy first year of tomatoes and a conversation with the lovely gal who runs the garden center, that the young black walnut tree right next to my garden was likely the culprit.
