I have an area in my backyard that does not see much sunlight and was wondering if you all have any recommendations of what veggies I could grow in the space. I live in zone 8b, and we get a lot of rain here. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Basil, Lettuce, Chard, Spinach, basically any leafy plant will grow in semi-shade.
Then any bulbing plant: kohlrabi, turnip, rutabaga, parsnip, carrot will grow.
Avoid growing fruiting plants in shade: tomato, pepper, eggplant, okra, squash, cucumber.
