I have a ne facing plot which is also very exposed to wind but I managed to grow white flowered runners beans last year and got a reasonable crop ( plus they looked v attractive and. Made me feel like a proper gardener!). The site was mostly shady. I also do wel, with potatoes grown in bags, again they don,t get much sun but I think if the soil is quite warm it doesn't seem to matter too much. This year I'll take pink heather 's advice and try sorrel!
