what vegetables can I grow in a shady border?

United Kingdom Gb

I have a border patch under a high stone wall - which is about two metres wide and maybe five metres long. I have grown potatoes before (on the furthest bit from the wall), but would like to use it more effectively - any tips?
Thanks Alison



I can think of lots of flower plants but veg. really do need sunlight to grow well.
