take in consideration that leaf veggies grow well in shady spots, so chard, spinach, cabbage and so on.  the sun hours they require is 5 per day minimum , but even if u have less than that i suggest u try anyway to grow them in the shade, u never know.

this is a wider list taken from this link

http://www.inthegardenonline.com/picks_10vegforshadeC21.htm

but if u input 'list of vegetables that grow in the shade' in google, u ll get a lot links

 

  1. Salad Greens, such as leaf lettuce, arugula, endive, cress, and radicchio
  2. Broccoli
  3. Cauliflower
  4. Peas
  5. Beets
  6. Brussels Sprouts
  7. Radishes
  8. Swiss Chard
  9. Leafy Greens, such as collards, mustard greens, spinach, and kale
  10. Beans

good luck with ur gardening,

bye for now,
