    You have two difficult hurdles. One is lack of sunlight and the other is plot size. If you can get something to grow and the deer find it, it won't last long. Food gone. Objective lost.

    A tall late maturing corn is good. The deer and other critters will eat the corn, but I've now found the stalks very palatable. Or, look for Sudex, a sorghum - sundan grass hybred.
