We use lots of lettuce and cucumber and carrots so maybe I'll look into those to start us off. We've got a garden centre down the road that it is run by a small charity so j might see if they have anything.

Sounds good! If you can get to both long sides and it isn't more than 2 or 3 metres long <i wouldn't bother with a middle path - waste of space and they are thin enough you can easily reach from both sides. I also wouldn't bother too much with carrots - they are so cheap to buy and I havent' yet had any success growing them :oops: ! TBH I've read good things about growing them in a big plastic garbage bin - I'd think better for you to try that methos - they need deep soil. The other things sound great though - should be able to get a good crop of them. Cuc's dont' take too much space - you could probably fit 4 along with other stuff to give you lots of them all summer. That garden centre sounds great and will be able to give you lots of advice for you soil / climate! Good luck @0_Lisa_0

I've never managed to grow carrots either, no matter what I try. Potatoes are easy, I normally grow them by accident as well as design! :giggle:
