10 Flowers + Veggies for Sun/Part Shade

I am so thrilled! I have a little garden plot for the spring/summer! Right now it’s a tangled mess but I have big dreams. The plot gets some sun and some shade, so I have been looking for flowers and veggies that will tolerate those conditions. I want to grow a cottage garden, which is a garden mixed with flowers, veggies, herbs and and basically everything! Here are some of the seeds I want to plant. Do you have a garden with some shade? What do you like to grow?
