Here’s a question from our 4/6/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Paul from Florida asks, “I would like to plant a four foot by six-foot vegetable garden in an area near our propane whole house generator. What would you recommend that the minimum distance should be from the generator?”

We say raised vegetable gardens are always a great choice. A safe distance would be about 6 feet away.
