Food to grow in shady areas

Oca: This small tuber loves growing in a shady spot. Water regularly and dig up the tubers in winter a few weeks after the tops die down.

Yacon: Although these also grow in full sun, I have had good results growing them in half or mottled shade. Dig the tubers when the tops die down in winter.

Lettuce: Lettuce grows quickly and well in lightly shaded areas.

Alpine strawberry:  These little strawberries love the shade. Keep moist. Does not produce runners and bears fruit most of the year.

American Groundnut:  Likes full sun to part shade. Give it something to climb on and the plant will be happy. Dig the tubers every two years.
