Prob a lot of your success will is dependent upon how many hours of aft sun you get. if it's noon on i think that should be plenty. many urban gardens are limited to aft or a.m. sun restrictions. i'd go for the leafy stuff... you can do all types of lettuces, frisee, mesclun, raddichio, arugula, kales, spinach, collards, etc. parsley's pretty tolerant- i like the italian stuff. mint. peas & bush beans- oh, & chives, garlic & onions. you can put in some flowers with those too- foxglove, coral bells, clarkia, impatiens, horned poppies, violas. i've been battling shade too & can't wait to prune back my fruit trees for next season
