I've learnt that I know about 1% of what I 'NEED' to know and also that I am the kiss of death to vegetables ( except tomatoes)
For the third year running I tried cucumbers in the greenhouse. One plant promptly died so replaced it and that one died too. The other one grew two cucumbers in total with many little ones growing to an inch or so then shrivelling up.
Tried potatoes in bags...not a great success because the bags had to stand in a passageway and we couldnt get past when the leaves were at their peak.
Likewise Runner beans...one meal for two and the risk of strangulation when passing!
BUT...it was fun and thats the main thing :)
