Got limited sun? These 15 vegetables only need 4 hours a day of direct light. Utilize them in those shaded areas of the yard, and leave the sun for the tomatoes. :)

Shady Pots: main dark leaved plant with pink is Dracena 'baby doll', the pink and green speckled heart shaped leaf on the left is a Caladium, the reddish flowers are from the begonia 'angel wing', the purple trailing plant is Scaevola, the yellow one is Bidens. Most of these plants would work well in a shady location. Although I find the Bidens and the Scaevola prefer more sun. I hope this helps!
