Thanks for your comments.....This is my first year too, I had some Charlotte potatoes at the end of July (grown in bags) and I've just unearthed Maris piper (also grown in bags) not a great lot of potatoes but enough to keep us going for a couple of weeks or so..alot were still quiet small so I think I should have left a few more weeks but as its my 1st year its all a learning curve this year.
I've had lots of courgettes and some peas a few pepers, onions lots of tomatoes,some cabbages too. And have growing in deep pots (2ft deep) carrots, leeks and parsnips all seem to be doing well..
The purple sprouting brocilli got eaten by those pesky slugs..tut
My runner beans got off to a bad start thanks to the slugs but they have grown really well and now have beans starting to grow,I have a feeling they are late this year as I seem to remember my bro-in-law had all of his by the end of August.
we are loving having home grown veg to eat...
