Give us an idea how many hours of full sun it receives a day. They say celery grows well in the shade. In my experience it has done better when it had six hours of sun. Without knowing if it has any full time sun it is hard to give advice. JD
Any of your leafy greens would do well there (in comparison to say, tomatoes)
Chard, spinach etc.. are heavy feeders and like a rich soil.
You could go for the odd and try comfrey there or stinging nettles.
Both plants would just love it..
so would mint!
Veggies will not do well in essentially no sun. However, four-to-five hours of full sun will be sufficient for leafy greens - spinach, lettuces, swiss chard, kale, cabbages, lettuces etc. Five-to-Six hours of full sun will do for - potatoes, carrots, beets, parsnips, broccoli, and brussel sprouts. Everything else needs six hours of full sun or more to produce.
