Several types of greens grow well in low light turnups,kale,mustard although they will not grow well in the heat.Planted in the fall make excellent deer fouder.rye will also and stay green in to the spring.The turnips will starch up and get sweet after first frost the tops will turn purple,watch out hunters eat them too.
