How does your garden grow?

One of the great joys of my life is watching the annual spring awakening of plant life. The container garden I used to plant on my deck doesn't yield vegetables any more since the trees surrounding my house have grown so much that I no longer have the minimum 6 hours of sun I used to barely manage. That really saddens me.
