There is barely 4 hours of sun in an area in my yard where I want to plant vegies. Is this enough sun or will there be more sun come daylight savings time.
Thank you

The answer depends upon what is causing the shade. If it's a building, the area will remain shady even in the summer time. If it's a tree, the sun will shift and it's possible you'll get more sunshine in the area as the summer progresses. You can plant leafy vegetables in the area (they require only 4 hours of sunshine each day) and you can plant sun loving tomatoes, peppers, etc. in containers and move the containers as the sun shifts in the sky during the summer months. Hope this helps!
