Question: I don’t have a lot of sunlight in my yard. How much will I need to grow good vegetables?

Answer: Most flowering and fruiting vegetables will need at least 6 to 8 hours of direct mid-day sunlight to yield well. Horticulturally, we’d call that “full or nearly full sun.” Leaf and root crops can get by with less direct sunlight, but, again, the less light they get, the poorer the yields will be.
