35 Nutritious Vegetables That Will Grow in Shaded Areas in Your Garden

Posted on

Would you like to be able to utilize every part of your yard?

Do you live on a piece of property that has a lot of shade?

Well, either way, know that there are some vegetables that will still grow in shaded spots. Keep in mind, most of the vegetables still require some sunlight.

But if you have a spot in your yard that is mostly shaded, you should try to grow some of the vegetables that I’m listing here. That way you can still yield more food on your property and not have any wasted space.

So if you would like to put those shaded spots to use, then consider growing some of these vegetables. These are the vegetables that will grow in a partially shaded area:

1. Arugula

Arugula is a nice peppery green that goes great in different salads. We grow it each year and I love adding it to a nice crisp salad that we can eat quickly on a hot night.

2. Beets

We grow beets every year. My husband loves having them pickled. They are very easy to grow in my experience and can be used to make many delicious dishes.

3. Broccoli

I absolutely love broccoli. So the fact that it actually prefers cooler temperatures and some shade makes it that much more amazing. Now you have no reason not to give it a try.

4. Cabbage

Cabbage is another crop that prefers cooler temperatures. The cooler the temperature the fewer bugs you must battle. So if you want to grow cabbage during the summer instead of the fall, then you may have better luck in the shade.

5. Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts are kind of like tiny cabbages. I personally think they are amazing little vegetables. They too make many great dishes, and since you can grow them in partial shade, why not grow them?
