How often, realistically will they be walked on? The obvious answer would be grass, which would have to be mowed but you MAY get away with camomile

Hello dwarf and welcome to the forum I don't know about the slime on your lettuces except that they might be rotting down a bit, separate the leaves and wash well, you may be able to salvage something edible.  Garden produce is never as pristine as shop stuff, but then we tend not to use the chemicals that their farmers use to have a commercially viable crop.

The peppers in Yorkshire where you are, I would put into 8 inch pots and keep them in the green house, or a sheltered sunny part of the garden, make sure they do not dry out. I start feeding mine tomato food when they are flowering. Other gardeners may do it differently.

Good luck with it and keep us posted

I have a Master Composter event at Hunstanton allotments on 10/8, which I am really looking forward to as I adore allotments. I think the forumatti gang should go if that is the only date available to you; I can always go to Beth Chatto's at a later date.

SuperN, will look that up, I think James Wong is the guy who promotes 'grow your own medicine'.

Welcome Ben, I don't know what part of London you are in, but Clifton Nurseries in Maida Vale, Petersham Nursery in Sheen area or the one next to Turnham Green Tube Station would all have a selection of plants and pots; if weight is an issue, suggest that you get a plastic/fibreglass pot, they can look really good these days. If you make too specific a choice right now, you may run the risk of not being able to get it by Saturday.
