I am new to gardening. The ideal spot in my backyard for a vegetable garden is only about 5 feet away from where my neighbor has his burn barrel (he mostly burns yard debris, sticks, leaves, etc). Will the smoke from his burn barrel be harmful to my vegetables? Is this a safe spot or should I find somewhere else to plant my veggies?

The smoke may deter some bugs ?
He does not burn every day ?

I don't think there will be any problem
