Are there any edible plants who don't mind horrible dirt (not worthy of being called soil) and minimal, 1-2 hours sun per day?

It's a new acre covered in grass so everything is going to be step by step. Just want to get things started where I can. Mint is awesome and I love how it can take over an area. Compost and raised beds later, but mint could go in at the start. Thanks
Thanks Bill, anything is a start. We just found a little farm land, but it's dirt. Trying to get any ideas to get started!
You might also try garlic and beets....and I've seen beans grow in almost sandy conditions. In fact, I have yet to have a bad bean crop no matter what the soil was like.
Beans, I had good success just planting those in our yard this year. Good idea!
My husband loves Peanuts, The soil is almost sandy, car driving over it too many times, pressed all down. Going to till but still sandyish. Got the PH tester, just got to get out there and get it done. Thank you!
Thanks peachy! We make compost but never buy it. Spinach seems to be a good idea. The kids hate it, but I'd enjoy it.
I think it should be ok to not remove any of it. It's been driven over a good bit, but I think with some time and compost it should be ok. I do like spinach though. Thanks.
