Does anyone know what vegatables that need little to no direct sunlight? I have a flower bed that I want to convert to a vegatable bed but I have a large tree that shades it pretty much all day. It gets some late day sun but it is mostly shade. Any ideas what would work good there? I want to expand my garden but am limited on space so I thought I would "reclaim" the flower bed for garden use. I'm in Zone 4 in SD. This bed is around a basement window and under a bedroom window. A couple of years ago when we actually got rain, the runoff would pile up in that corner and leak into my basement. I put in a raised bed to keep the water off the house and provide a place for it to be absorbed. The water runs in this area as my St Bernard has made a race course right there and the ground is now so compacted the water just runs off or sits there. :no: Building the bed has helped.
