I have to say i'm becoming more selective on what i grow. To get a space in my plot it now has to offer superior flavour over what i can buy locally. So things like spuds, onions just are not worth it, parsnips may go the same way this year i'll decide. Either that or i'd rather devote space to high value produce that's expensive in the shops like soft fruit.
Other things i really like growing are carrots as they taste so good out the ground, broad beans, peas, beetroots, salad crops. Winter squash, leeks and broccoli, make the cut as they are so low maintenance, and you can grow much tastier varieties than those available commercially.
Then in the greenhouse toms, cucumbers, chilli's and peppers. I'm ditching melons from the greenhouse this year.
