I have a 20' x 60' that is half in shade. I plan to plant Bush Beans, Corn, Green Peppers, Chard, Bush Butternut Squash, Zuchini and Yellow squash, cukes, tomatoes, and cantalope. What can I plant in the shade portion with hopes of any success?

Unfortunately, most vegetables really do prefer at least six hours of sun with those hours including noon. However, of the above, the beans and chard would tolerate some shade, as might the peppers.
