Do you have suggestions on low(er) light vegetables?

Post  Hasselback on 5/14/2012, 2:11 am

I have a couple of spots for my garden that get less light than the others. Are there any particular vegetables that do well in less than perfect lighting conditions?

Thanks,
G.

I don't know what your zone is but you might try lettuce, spinach, radishes, or carrots.

When I was in the Philippines, I saw a garden run by an orphange and posted this thread of pictures taken by some friends of mine. This is not in the mountains but on the hot, coastal area.

I am following your growing threads carefully so I can report back to my friends what is successful in your climate. They have not been able to get tomatos to set fruit. Had a 10' vine and 1 small tomato.
