Hi Mick and welcome to the forum.

My potato bed is in a nearly full shady spot with lots of daylight, minimal sun.

For fruit you could try a different type of blueberry, and I think pawpaw is an under canopy fruit too.

My Nan always grew Rhubarb in little sun. Asparagus is another that might be worth a try.

How about a herb garden there are a few herbs that don't mind not having full sun.

Lots of pets, garden and cups of tea on the front porch. Farm in the suburbs.
