Vegetables In A Cold Dark Draft

What vegetables will thrive in localities where the sun shines only part

of the day? I have a space in my garden that gets the sun only between

the hours of 11 and 5, thereabouts; I would like to utilise those places

for vegetables if any particular kind will grow under such conditions.

The soil apparently is good, of a sandy nature, with some loam. The

place is high and subject to much wind.

You can only definitely determine by actual trial what vegetables will

be satisfactory under the shade conditions which you describe. You may

get good results from lettuces, radishes, beets, peas, top onions, and

many other things which do well at rather a low temperature, while

tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, etc., would probably be worthless. Your

soil is probably satisfactory and you can easily keep the moisture right

by being careful not to use as much water as you would in open sunshine.

The behavior of the plants will be directly dependent upon the

temperature and the sunshine which they receive under the conditions
