Our new house a few years ago was perfect in lots of ways, but, horror! -- the back "garden" was totally paved over. Honestly, what idiot.....? Anyway, before I managed to get some of the slabs up, (my husband is disabled), I grew broad, runner and French beans, mangetout peas, courgette, tomatoes, cucumber, radish, lettuce, rocket, borage, nasturtium, chillies, very tastily. Carrots always a disaster though, and beetroot tough as old boots. Can't win 'em all, but it's great fun, so have a go!
