Answer: Unfortunately and as you have already guessed, most of the popular veggies need full sun or at least six hours of sun including the hour of noon to do well. Some to try in a shadier area would include onions, leafy greens such as spinach, chard, and lettuce as well as root vegetables such as beets and carrots. Peas and green beans will tolerate some shade, as will many herbs: parsley, chives, garlic, dill, cilantro, and basil come to mind. Cherry tomatoes might also produce, albeit more lightly, if you are craving tomatoes.
