I've been gardening in my backyard for a couple of years now, but most of my yard receives less than 4 hours of sunlight. I have some caladiums growing in the shade along the fence, but I am interested in using more of the space for plants that are more useful.... Are there any vegetables or herbs that will grow in minimal sunlight... The areas receive between 2-3 hours of direct sunlight. I have a small area of the yard that receives full sunlight but it's used up quickly with some tomatoes, peppers, strawberries and hops plants. I just feel like the other 3/4 of my yard is going to waste just having grass growing in it.
