    Well...DH subscribed to the Diggers Club magazine, I have been trawling through it to decide.

    Have a separate garden bed prepared for potatoes..King Edwards and Ruby Lou.
    We have carrotts in already. Want to put in some broccoli, cauliflour, some sort of lettuce. I would like to grow celery, beetroot and spring onions as these are things we use alot.
    With our Tax refund we are getting the Chickens I posted about, so will have some natural fertiliser.
    I am not great either Smithy on the seasons so the Magazine has been a big help. I like to plant things that I currently buy at Fruit n Veg.
    I am thinking it would be worth us investing in a 'companion planting' table so I know what to plant next to each to enourage good growth.

    I planted cos lettuce, carrots and brown onions, rosemary, basil and parsley. I didn't go overboard because it's not a full sun area and I wanted to make sure that it was going to cope okay. The lettuce was lovely, the carrots are almost ready to go, the basil died, and everything else seems to be growing fine, so I'm hoping to plant some pumpkin (and run the risk of being overrun!!) and maybe some other vegies too.
