Do you know what can grow and be eaten without a lot of sunshine? I have big trees on my property and the spots that get sunlight get it only for 5 to 6 hours. I really like them but growing food has been a problem.
Cabbage and Kale are good. Onions, either starts bought as early in the season as possible, or seed starts. Dandelions. Beets can be started, depending on the soil, you may or may not get actual beet tubers, but if you start them early you can get tons of beet greens, which are excellent in salads.
Potatoes of course. Various spinach types.
I shoot for things that can start early in the cool weather here in the Pacific Northwest, but won’t take off crazy and bolt as soon as it warms up.
I musta harvested 10,000 lettuce seeds this year! Literally!!
“Do you know what can grow and be eaten without a lot of sunshine?”
Broccoli, lettuce or any type of leafy greens, probably green beans, snow peas, most beans or peas, most anything that grows underground like carrots, beets, radishes, potatoes, ginger root or horse radish,
You can grow marijuana with grow lights in your garage and then take the money you make and buy food.
Don’t let the shade stop you. Grow in containers and you can move them as needed to sunny spots. Peas, lettuce, peppers, tomatoes and more all grow well in containers. You can still grow things in 6 hours of direct sunlight.
