I messed up – do I need to move my vegetable garden?

Question by earthqueenmama: I messed up – do I need to move my vegetable garden?
I am in Memphis, Zone 7. I planted a “Square Foot Garden” (raised bed garden) full of vegetables at my new home. Bell peppers, peas, beans, tomatoes, watermelon, squash, herbs, etc. I thought the spot I chose was full sun. Not sure how I messed this up… It appears my beds are getting only about 3 hours of sun a day, from noon to 3:00. Do I need to move the beds? It won’t be easy, but it is possible before the plants get too big. To think I dug up all that grass underneath them. Sigh. Thank you!

    You do not need to move the beds this year, but 3 hours of direct sunlight will have an impact on the production of your plants. If, after the end of your harvest, you are unsatisfied with the quantity, or the timeliness of your harvest, consider relocating the gardens. Gardening is not a science, but an art, which takes time, effort, and patience, and which produces a tremendous amount of enjoyment, not to mention food.
    Good luck.
