Most warm-season vegetables need at least 6 hours of direct sunshine each day. Failing that, you can grow most leafy veggies in partial shade. Lettuce, cabbage, and kale will grow in the spot you describe. You may have success with scallions and peas, as well. Just think in terms of a green salad garden, and you won't go too far wrong.
