Shade Tolerant Herbs And Vegetables For Your Garden

 

This year I moved some of my vegetable garden behind the garage to make more room for flowers!  It’s all about the flowers for me.  The only problem was that the section of land is in partial shade with a little corner in full shade.  I needed to make this happen because, well, we need to eat and growing my own vegetables saves a lot of money!  I did a little research on Shade Tolerant Herbs And Vegetables and everything’s working out fine.  I get more flowers and I still save money on fresh organic vegetables.

The following list is a bit long however, I wanted to give you a wide variety of herbs and vegetables that you can grow in the shade.  Having this knowledge will help your land be more productive and if you are like me you can grow more flowers!

I have three favorites from the season.  First, the lemon balm is doing wildly well in the shade!  Next, wild ramps are in complete dappled shade, I have never grown these before so they are new to me.  Lastly, spinach is slow to bolt further extending the season.  Give gardening in the shade a try and see what works well in your soil and climate.
