  • Lettuce
  • Parsley
  • Parsnips
  • Potatoes

Garden Plans

The garden plans below are "partial shade" so they will also have sun-loving plants in them.  For example, the first plan probably has shade on the left where the leafy greens are but the squash and tomatoes on the right will need full sun.  Likewise, the third plan probably has shade at the top but full sun elsewhere because corn, beans, squash and tomatoes all like full sun.
