I am trying to decide whether to plant my beds running North/South or East/West. I have read that it's best to plant in rows running east/west with tallest crops on the north side so nothing is ever shaded through the day but I have also read that North/South beds with tall crops to the west is better so that everything gets the same amount of morning sun (which is supposedly much more important than afternoon sun). Option A makes sense because in the afternoon I don't want my corn to shade my shorter crops but if morning sun is really the most important, then option B makes more sense. Any opinions?
