Alternative Gardning: Shade tolerant vegetables. I love this, but the picture under parsnips is turnips. I don't know if turnips are shade tolerant. This sure makes we want to consider moving my green onions from their permanent place in the garden to a shady place.
By far, the safest bet for a shady spot in the garden is a leafy green such as lettuce, arugula, collards, kale, mustard, spinach and Swiss chard. Growing in partial or even dappled shade, these greens will be less likely to require protection on really hot days and as long as the soil has good drainage, they'll have more even moisture, which will help to keep them from getting a bitter flavor.
