Vegetables for Planting in Shady Spots

I have a strip of ground between my house and fence about 4 feet wide with very good soil. The problem is that it only gets a couple hours direct sunlight late in the afternoons. I planted potatoes there last year, but they produced very little. Does anyone know of a vegetable I can grow there that doesn't need a lot of sun?
