I have a strip of soil that never gets any sun because of the house,what is the best veg to grow that dosen/t need the sun.Its about 2 feet wide and 15 feet long



Most veg does like sun but I think spinach might grow in shade. It goes to seed when it is too dry so you might need to water a lot.

I read that if you grow a plant for its root or fruit it ought to have full sun, and if you grow it for leaves, stems or buds the shade will be fine.
