FInders, you can always plant beetroots and stuff like that. I like mangetout peas and they should do ok so long as no sneaky mice eat the peas what you're planted. Rocket's nice if you like that sort of thing. Radishes can carry on being planted for ages yet too as can letti (plural of lettus you know).

I like spinach in a spinach and blue cheese quiche and young leaves raw in a salad... I quite like it cooked, and eaten cold with a drizzle of olive oil, some freshly ground pepper and seasalt on some hot bruschetta :-)

Not sure how close you are to me Finders, we're sort of west suffolk, near cambridge. I could always post some eggs to you if necessary, although they tend to be a bit squashy on arrival in my experience.

excellent, you can come for dinner too then Hann! :-) Free range eggs, rocket on a bed of whatever else I've got growing.

Oooh one thing you can always do is buy small plants like peppers, corgettes etc from garden centres and plant those. Gives them a head start. I've got some nice hot chilli plants in the conservatory and I talk to them regularly. "Come on you bastards, grow!"

LOL dr Bob!
I've decided my peppers are pants due to lack of heat
but they are in grow bags now so not portable
I may crack the grow bag into pots and bring them into the conservatory to bake instead!

pmsl Bob -hubby has loads of chilli plants in my ickle greenhouse contraption. He's nurturing them quite well actually and im impressed. We both usually lack patience in these areas, but im loving seeing it all coming along nicely. My carrots have proper carrot leaves now and i've got a few blueberries forming too.
