Solid Light Goes to Solid Shade

JabJones added on July 28, 2012 | Answered

I have an L-shaped garage. The rectangle it contains gets plenty of sunlight from about 8 am - 12:30 pm. After that, solid shade moves in. Could I plant a veggie garden in that rectangle? I was thinking the reflected heat from the garage walls in the mornings might improve the situation. I'd like to plant climbing beans and peas against the walls. Are tomatoes possible?
