Any suggestions for veg that won't mind a fairly shady spot? Neighbours, new and remarkably tall fence - I have the choice of moving the whole garden around, or finding veg that don't hate shade. Thanks

Cabbage, Spinach, Runner Beans and Lettuce to name but a few.

I have this same problem!!!! But I grow everything as I've noticed that the sun moves around during the day so at least the veg get some sun and when are summers get hotter like they have done lately, the plants need the shade. You just have to try. In my garden my bulbs are always the last to flower thanks to the 6ft fence but they DO flower
