Will a garden get the same amount of sun each year?

8 hours of sunlight on which day?

It's the same every year, as Dove says, but it changes through the year. From least at the winter solstice (December) to most at the summer solstice, (June).

Are biodegradeable compost bags safe?

Your neighbour hasn't spoiled your garden, you can grow stuff in front of the fence. 

Don't let your anger and distress spoil the garden, that is a much more serious problem
