Dreaming the veggie garden

proposed site for the veggie patch

My garden is large and well shaded providing a welcome refuge in summer and homes to many creatures Рnaughty and nice. My challenge is to  build the veggie garden where it will receive enough sun. The proposed site currently receives full sun for about 2 hours of the day, and dappled sun for another 2 hours Рconsidering that it is the middle of winter, this may be adequate.

Existing food plants at the beginning of this productive veggie garden project are: 1 mandarin tree and 1 paw paw tree.There is a resident possum in the garden: it ate all the mandarins in June.
