Hello substantial and welcome.

What have you got to swap?

What is this little plant?

Misspent youth. I used to try to identify as many plants as possible and learn the latin names. It led to me buying a lot of books. I have more gardening and plant books than the local library.

 And from diving, I have a lot of fish and marine life identification books as well.

and an advanced certificate in Marine Biology , and A level Biology.

 well, you have to do something on dark winter nights don't you.?

Stick them on the compost heap. You can leave bean roots to rot in the ground.

 If you get a very mild winter beans are perennial and might regrow, but usually the frost gets them.

And I might be missing something here, but you would have to wait until all the toms have ripened before you dig up the potatoes?

 So not first earlies then. Maincrop susceptible to blight?

Tomorrow I will dig on the front. Today I went up the garden and missed the man from Yodel, who took the bird food back to the depot in Loughborough. Usually they leave it by the dustbin.

Might be OK if you only have a balcony and are desperate for space. 

Otherwise its just a gimmick with no relevance to real gardeners.

Handy to have a paramedic on call. How far away does he live?

When OH had a heart attack, I had a paramedic in 3 mins and an ambulance  in 5.

 8 miles in 8 minutes straight through all the red lights, straight into cardiac intensive care. Sometimes there are advantages in living right next to  M1.
