"Because if the transgenic canola starts swapping genetic material with weed populations - something that is not unlikely..." Ok, so do we really need to review what a "species" is, or how reproduction works?

It's a common misconception that the only site to grow vegetables in s one that's in full sun. For some vegetables, such as tomatoes, peppers, and squash, this is entirely true. But those of us who have shade are not doomed to a life without homegrown produce. Basically, a good rule to remember is that if you grow a plant for the fruit or the root, it needs full sun. If you grow it for the leaves, stems, or buds, shade is just fine. Keep in mind, no vegetable will grow in full shade.
Even in shady conditions, you can bask in great garden harvests if you choose the right crops and make a few easy adjustments.

Yucca is a genus of perennial shrubs and trees in the family Asparagaceae , subfamily Agavoideae . [ 2 ] Its 40-50 species are notable for their rosettes of evergreen , tough, sword-shaped leaves and large terminal panicles of white or whitish flowers . They are native to the hot and dry ( arid ) parts of North America , Central America , South America , and the Caribbean . Early reports of the species were confused with the cassava ( Manihot esculenta ). [ 3 ] Consequently, Linnaeus mistakenly derived the generic name from the Carib word for the latter, yuca (spelt with a single "c"). [ 4 ] It is also colloquially known in the Midwest United States as "ghosts in the graveyard", as it is commonly found growing in rural graveyards and when in bloom the flowers appear as floating apparitions.
