Crown Prince is lovely and has great flavour. This year I'm trying Baby Blue and Sweet Dumpling as they're smaller and it'll just be me and OH as Possum is living in student digs this year.
I grew pointy cabbage for the first time this year and have been very pleased with the crop so far so will grow more of it next year. After years of not bothering I have one courgette plant and it's doing fine.
Normal veggies for me are red oak leaf lettuce, radicchio and cos lettuces; broccoli, PSB, fennel, kale, Savoy cabbage, red cabbage, Swiss chard, beetroot, rhubarb and soft fruits.
I have tomatoes and chilli plants safely tucked up in the greenhouse but they were outside in a hot spell in May when we had a murderous hailstorm so are only half the size they should be and the crop will be late. I'm trying Brandywine toms this year and new chillies for me - Hungarian Black and Bulgarian carrot.
