My veg plot is on the north side of the house so is in shade all winter but does get full sun for about a month either side of the summer solstice when it's high enough. Morning and afternoon sun the rest of the year.
I grow salad leaves, red onions, Savoy cabbage, curly kale and cavolo nero, fennel, turnips, kohl rabi, leeks, beetroot, Swiss chard, broccoli. Carrots don't seem to work in my soil. I also have rhubarb and black and redcurrant bushes and purple gooseberries.
