Berries for partial sun
I have a couple of raised beds that get plenty of sun in the spring, but when the trees leaf out they get 3-4 hours of morning sun, then dappled sun throughout the rest of the day. I tried growing vegetables there for a couple of years. They grew but weren't prize winners. Once I moved them out to the sun, they went wild.
I've seen raspberries and blueberries listed as needing partial to full sun, so I wonder if they would work there. Since it's a raised bed set apart from my other planting areas, it would be easier to acidify the soil for them. I've also thought about other berries--acai, logenberry, goji, etc. I've also considered putting a couple of dwarf fruit trees there, or possibly an asparagus patch.
Comments? Would this work? Could I--should I--use some combination of the above? The soil still needs badly to be amended, but that's doable.
This is, of course, all for next spring, but I could start amending the soil this fall. It's sandy and probably doesn't have that many nutrients. I've worked in some compost, but I'm sure it needs a lot more.
