Fence shade edibles

Garden_EaterApril 16, 2013

Hi,
I've enjoyed reading the posts. I'm as newbie as gets on plants except for tomatoes and peppers. I fast three days a week.
What I want to do is grow spices and some dieting foods in my inner city yard. In the sunny areas I grow alot of tomatoes and peppers. I eat green tomatoes, and like eating them before they are ripe. This helps with having a longer season to go out, pick something, and eat it.

My biggest issues is two fences solid wood six feet tall. A total of 100 feet of shade. That face north and south. Grass grows right up to fence on both sides though.
I would like to plant edibles that come back every year in the shade behind the fence. As well as hang some herb pots.

I've got mint and blackberries along my wood fence. It runs east-west. Both plants were planted by my neighbor to the south and grew through the fence onto my side, so I take advantage. Both the mint and the blackberries are prolific and perennial, so I can use them every year.

Thanks
I do have 6 mulberry growing on fence posts. I get a good nutrient and fullness from eating those berries.
What about chives or a onion that sprouts in spring, but due to lack of sunshine I could/should pull up early?
