This is the real experiment of all. This bed is almost entirely shaded through out the day. Half of it gets an hour or so first thing in the morning. It’s the biggest of the 3 beds so I had to plant and see what would happen. From transplants I planted a red bell pepper, chives, dill and parsley. From seed I planted beets, radishes, lettuce, spinach, green onion and carrots. I planted garlic bulbs here also. Everything has sprouted but seems to be growing slower than the other beds. I’ve used the parsley and dill already. Good stuff!
