Good Morning Robert! I live in Northern VA (zone 6b) and have all of my
strawberries (> 100 plants) on the north side, 2-3 feet from the house
and they have done wonderfully for 18 years! Enough so, that I make 4-5
batches of strawberry jam for Christmas each year. I would think most
herbs would do well too.

I have an area on the North side of the house. Up next to the house
really. Of course it only recieves sun in the early morning hours. I
would say roughly 2-4 maximum. I am in Zone 8a, hot and humid summers,

and I was wondering if there were vegetables, fruits, or herbs that I
could plant there that would do well. Seems the previous owner planted
some hedges there that died, and I am getting ready to clean it out and
work up the dirt there. Any ideas?
