    I am putting in my garden and have a 10ft by 2 ft strip of land that I would like to plant some kind of veggie. It gets a little morning sun and then goes shady. From anyone's experience, what would do well here. Thanks for the help.

    I would think that any root vegetable would do OK. I have 2 raised beds in that situation, and grow lettuce, zucchini, carrots, onions there and they do fine. I am in western WA on the Olympic Peninsula.

    All kinds of lettuce would do fine. I'd think about putting zucchini there too. I can't imagine shade discouraging zucchini.

    Lettuce and zucchini were two things I was planning on so that is great advice. Thanks so very much!

    A waste of time. You will have lush plants with no fruit. Why bother? Even root crops need to flower.
