First time gardener here.....I have a few raised beds in a corner of my yard. We had to put them here despite potential shade problems. One of the beds (happens to be the longest) seems like it should get good sunlight for atleast 6 hrs but I have been having problems with some pepper plants and basil that I put in there. I planted peppers and basil in this 'questionable' bed as well as another bed back in early April (from nursery bought starters). The peppers have grown only about 4-6 inches in this bed as compared to the other spot. The only theory I can come up with is that since we are in the San Francisco Bay area we get some morning fog (some days till 11am) so maybe they are not getting enough sun shine.
Whew...now to the actual questions
1) Is it safe you think to move the pepper plants to another spot? The tallest one is probably about 6inches high.
2) What would you recommend to grow in this bed which is unreliably sunny? Once the fog burns off, it gets great sunshine till about 4pm after which it is shaded by some hedges and dappled sunlight.
Thanks in advance.
