    Which direction for garden?

    My garden rows go north/south now but could easily be changed to east/west next year. Anyone have any thoughts on what direction is best for the crops? Any pros or cons for which direction, or does it even matter?

    from the ground as the tree grows? I stopped at my brother's the other day and he was cutting grass. Kept struggling to mow under some Pin Oaks he planted a few years ago and the limbs are about 5' above the ground. I asked why he did not cut the low limbs off to make mowing easier. He said they...
