If you have a lot of land, and have a choice of slope-that is, if part of the land slopes to the south and another part slopes to the north — garden the slope that points towards the sun. That spot will be the warmest and it will warm up earlier in the spring. You'll be able to plant sooner, and to a cash gardener that means more money. Most people don't have this choice, but if you're one of the lucky few, make the best use of this advantage.
When deciding where to put your garden, look over your entire property. There may be areas that you might have overlooked during the first go-around, as well as areas that could be used if your garden were split up. Many people turn their side yard or even their front yard into a cash garden. A square foot garden certainly is attractive and would enhance any yard, regardless of its location.
