Yes, it is.  Those trees are sucking out all the nutrients from the soil.

I can deal with the soil.  Its the shade.

There are plenty of nice plants, flowers that prefer shade or partial sunlight.

Its my veggies not the flowers.  I love and have many hostas, Japanese painted ferns, columbines, and Lily of The Valley.  Growing my heirloom tomatoes and bicolor corn is the hard part.

Do you have any part of the garden where there is some partial sun?

I should point out that I have been an organic gardener for 45 years and have a lot of experience.  I appreciate your questions, but I probably have more experience gardening than anyone here.  No offense, I just don't want you to waste your time advising me of things I know all too well.

hmmm the humor bug has struck me.

I guess you got 3 choices:

1. cut down the trees and tell yur neighbor the wind blew them over
2. get some big mirrors to hang up and catch the sun
3. waste money on some grow lights

pure wishful thinking ;-)

Highly reflective mylar-covered plywood behind my plants to reflect the sunlight they didn't grab the first time.  And I did consider mirrors.  You have NO idea what some gardeners will resort to, LOL!

And when I looked it up on the internet, the least detectable way of killing trees was salting them.

Daylilies are beautiful. I have almost a 100 blooms about to go.  Everything from yellow to maroon.

You have got the cat as well. Looks like Iza.

Glad you enjoyed the flower pics.  I had to re-learn Imgur for uploading to a message board specifically.  Thank you, and well done on identifying IZA by the way.  Even some of our cat-blogging friends get Ayla and Iza confused.  She sends you purrs for that...

Well, Iza is a different breed, tends to get fatter while Ayla is slimmer, with a narrow head,  a siamese cat?
