Vegetables to Grow in Shade

It is common to read that a vegetable garden should be in full sun. While this is true for many vegetables, some will grow well in shade.

Some gardeners do just not have the full sun required for tomatoes, corn, peppers and other sun lovers. So instead of giving up, look for the shade loving types that will produce well in these conditions.

As a general rule it is the leafy greens that grow well in shade, however a few others are also worth considering.
