    ooh interesting, i have potatoes and strawberries already in but i've just planted green beans and courgettes and sown broad beans, butternut squash, french beens, beetroot, carrots and leeks.

    will be interested to see how you get on, be careful with your broccoli, catterpillars ate all mine last year!

    Brit, what are broad beans? We have so many varieties of "green" beans here that I'm imagining them to be a version of a green bean?

    Kentucky Wonders, pole beans, fava, flat Italian, green string, wax, ... all sorts of varieties!

    It will be interesting to see if anything grows, I have never done anything like this before so it will be a cause of trial and error I think.
    I will keep you up dated.
