: This is my first time planting a garden since I was a kid. My wife is worried of the placement of my garden. Seh si worried about were the water runs of the roof and into the garden. Can this be cause for alarm? Will this hurt thegarden in any way. I can see already my wife is worried and will probably not eat any of the vegatables that come from the garden. Hoping someone knows the answwer to this. I did not think about this until I planted everything. It does not rain here that much in Az anyways! : )
: I did plant squash & zuchini and carrots and tomatoes.
: Look for to any help.
Why specifically is she worried about the roof run off? Is your roof made of treated cedar or something like that that may contain arsnic?
Many people; especially in low rain areas; collect their run off in rain barrels to use throughout the season.
If you are truly worried you may be able to re-route your gutters or collect the water in a barrell and then just discard it away from the garden.
