i am at the beginning of designing a landscape that will support as many edibles as possible...only problem is, i have a lot of shade. luckily, there are a number of my favorite fruits and vegetables that will fit in my garden areas with 4-6 hours of sun or less.
first, i wanted to get the perennial foundation plants selected:
raspberries and lingonberries (in containers)
strawberries (also in containers)
monarda (bee balm)
oreganos (plural, because there are lots of types)
little parsley hedges
i need to place decorative and functional raised beds and/or containers along walkways and paths for annual shade tolerant foods such as
potatoes (already growing this year in bags)
i currently have salad greens in my self-watering planter boxes, and the
dont mind less than 4 hours of sun...everything does grow i bit slower with more shade, but plants dont bolt when the heat and humidity kicks in. i need to get drawing!
