Answer: Basically, a good rule to remember is that 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.
So, until you know exactly how much sun or shade the area gets, you can plant the following crops, which will produce with three to six hours of sun, or fairly constant dappled shade, per day. Salad Greens, such as leaf lettuce, arugula, endive, and cress; Broccoli; Cauliflower; Peas; Beets; Brussels Sprouts; Radishes; Swiss Chard; Leafy Greens, such as collards, mustard greens, spinach, and kale; Beans.
