I got a vegetable area the gets no more the 5 hrs. of sun. Tomatoes and cucumber do well but their crop is average (the tomatoes take very long to ripen). Is any other vegetable you know may do better ... zucchinis perhaps ?
Thank you

Zucchini and other squashes need lots of sunshine in order to flower and produce fruits. You'll have lots of success with plants that don't need to flower in order to produce: leaf lettuces, spinach, radishes, carrots, celery, chard, cabbage, etc. are always good choices for a partially shaded garden.
