Low Light Crops
- Potatoes thrive well in the climate provided by Ireland, which is damp and with little sunlight.
- Carribou herds roam the far north, and thrive on the moss that is the only vegetation available to them.
- Ferns prefer the shade, and require a lot of moisture. A caution on eating ferns is that the fiddleheads, the new
growth part of the leaves that is curled like the neck and head of a fiddle, are poisonous unless boiled first.
- Dandelion is a hardy weed that most consider a curse, but the leaves are edible as a green and dandelion wine
is a common home-made wine.
- Leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale are easy to grown in any light.
