Vegetables to Grow in Shady Gardens

PLANT something! Got limited sun? These 15 vegetables only need 4 hours a day of direct light. 15 Shade Tolerant Vegetables: Utilize them in those shaded areas of the yard, and leave the sun for the tomatoes.

These plants can take a good deal of shade and actually do better if protected from sun in harsher heat zones.

Vegetables You Can Grow in The Shade - a good rule of thumb is if you grow a plant for the fruit or the root, it needs full sun. If you grow it for the leaves, stems, or buds, a little shade will be just fine. This may be good to know for our garden ☺️
