It really needs to build the crown up before you can use it - save a corner for it in the autumn - it'll need an area about 1m x 1m.

Have you planted any dwarf French beans yet?  They're quite quick to crop.  Pak Choi is another quick one.  You can so them both direct into the ground where they're going to grow.  

I'm amazed at how quickly my Pak Choi is growing this year in the warm dampness at the moment.
