Which Vegetables Can I Grow in a Shady Balcony?

prats added on November 2, 2012 | Answered

I have a west facing balcony, ground floor, flanked by trees on the compound wall. . . so gets a limited sunlight in the winter. I was wondering which plants can I grow in the balcony, apart from leaves like lettuce and spinach (please suggest fruit and root species). I do get 3-4 hour of afternoon sun though.
