Screen shot 2013-07-10 at 8.51.49 AMI have two spots in my yard that I plant veggies. A really sunny spot where I have one raised bed (pictured above from last summer). Last year I grew tomatoes, swiss chard, eggplant, basil and lettuce with great success. This time around I will plant tomatoes, basil and probably swiss chard again. My other larger area is two large raised beds in partial shade (pictured below). I’ve had some success with broccoli and cauliflower but other veggies that I’ve planted wanted full sun. This year I did some research on shade tolerant plants and I’m going to try kale, spinach, lettuce and strawberries for sure, not sure what else. I think I will also mix in some shade tolerant flowers and plants. Here’s a good list or this one for some shade tolerant veggies. Now if I can just figure a way to keep my annoying dogs out of the garden area everything would be peachy! Got any ideas?
