Have consulted OH who will be creating this space, and have been informed that "Of course we will be growing runner beans"- so thanks gardengirl and artjak  for the info. Very useful. I have been informed that we will also be growing some tatties.

Dove- I've not heard of French beans before, they look do look nice and tasty.The plot is one of the sunniest places in the garden (if the sun shone).

Bjay(?)Tinkle- that's why I've been thinking about sugar snaps, I love them but there is no way I'm going to pay £1.50-£2 for just one fork full of them Square foot gardening is something I will be looking into.

artjak- I've never eaten a globe artichoke and would struggle probably to name one if I saw it but it's size as you describe it would rule it out,now if that was Cosmos Purity plant.......

unfortuneltly I do not like fresh tomatoes at all. There was a point in my life that I couldn't even bear them to be on my plate. Real shame as I think they are really easy to grow if there was some sun.

 I've only had a garden for 2 years and have only grown flowers, feels like I'm embarking on a whole new world

Thanks to all for chilli tips and warnings, I will definatley use gloves to prevent any accidential burning. Dove the receipe looks very good, will get used to using real chillis before I embark on using red wine as well.

Hi all,

Didn't think it would happen..... but will be having a go at veggies next year.

The plot will be 10ft(L) and 6ft(W) in a really sunny spot. I want to grow something easy and generally low maintenance but most of all something that I can go out and get and then cook it

I love sugar snaps but i find they are a bit too much money to buy in the supermarkets. Onions, I use a lot of so think these would be good as well.

Are these easy vegs to start off with? Any advice about what seeds to get? There's so many different types/varieties

I have a cooking question for you all I cook a chilli on a Saturday and although the vast majority of it is from fresh ingrediants I usually use a tabasco sauce to liven it up.

I've bought some fresh chillis (red, medium) but don't really know how to use them. Do I chop them up and just bung in with everything else or add them to the mince, onions as I'm browning them off? And how many do I use?

Hi Dove, I have a few little chimes both in outside and in. The neighbours just have a blank huge lawn but fortunatley their noisey, yappy nippy terrier is kept indoors (not good for the dog) but good for me

I love my sleep so if it was keeping me awake it would really annoy me. Although I have the ablity to sleep through anything

no more food talk please :o(
