To be honest. Mike has skipped most of the replies. Somehow I feel that this is a bit of a tricky question. Let's depart from the singular to the multipla. So you have a plot. You wish to grow provide as much as possible of your daily needs. So top of the list. Spuds. Take stock. of the UK's populace. Even the Welsh use spuds in their soups. Potato and leek soup. My friends the Scotties. Haggis and tatties, tatties and whatever. Without doubt. The humble spud must be top orf the list. Now take stock of your sunday roast, whetherornot you eat in or out. The sunday roast. Meat, spuds, boiled and roast, followed by peas, greens (cabbage) perhaps onions. I think these are the basics. OK in the case of cabage. The world is your oyster, Basic cabbage, cauli, Brocklie etc. Onions, shallotts, leeks. Definitely, carrots and when in season parsnips. For the latter. Parsnips are best after a frost. Then fo a more valid pot. The old favourite swede, Several other veggies might be added. But as starters. I stick to the above.
