Are there any fruit or veg that will grow close to a north facing 6ft fence?

Is there any sun at all? Total shade, probably not. Partial shade yes. Spinach, lettuce, Brussels sprouts, chard, peas.

I put some runner beans and french climbing beans in a similar location this year, ground gets about one hour sun around Feb / March, double row about 2 feet from wall. Sun catches the rows well later on May / June. Seemed to be no problem - good crop.

I grow all my veg in woodland... Have got the best carrots, pumpkins, beetroot, chard and onions this year and not to mention the self set cherry toms which are outstanding.....
