Shade is not something that comes naturally to us here at BrightHaven. However, we do have a few spaces in the front yard that have grown shady by the planting of a river birch. The soil in these shady areas is amazing. Worms dance and frolic all the time in these beds. I felt I had to give them something better to do than just loiter.
And, it just so happened that I came across a little infogram on Pinterest, showing which vegetable plants would do well in the shade. The picture depicted 15 vegetable shade plants but I just picked out the ones I liked best and that it was time to plant on the Gulf Coast.
Curious yet? Here they are:
- bok choi
- mustard greens
I bought seed for the carrots, bok choi, beets and mustard greens so they are not quite in the ground yet. And the garlic? I normally plant garlic as my birthday present to myself. Just didn’t happen this year. I’m still telling myself I will plant it. We’ll see, won’t we?
