I had a small plot in mostly shade where azalea bushes were growing for years.
The azaleas were removed since a few had died off already.
I’d like to try my hand out at growing veggies on this plot.
Will it work?
In the summer, I get a few hours of direct sun on the plot, around 5/6 hours.

Good morning, Bea!
Though soil under Azalea quickly turns acidic, the opposite is also true: pH will return to normal in time. Especially if you amend the soil with compost, manure, etc.

Hello, I agree with Nate, in time soil ph will even out. Until then I’d recommend the following plants: they love acidic soil! You ‘ll realize most of our favorite veggies are there, so get started planting without fear!
