can potatoes be grown in the shade in acidic soil



If the soil is too alkaline it can encourage potato scab so the acidity shouldn't be a problem unless the soil is very acid. Potatoes do need plenty of sunlight to grow well so permanently shaded areas are unlikely to produce much of a crop (although I've never actually tried).
