I have a roof top veg garden, greenhouse and 2 small garden shares..

Rooftop : 250 Normal onions, some shallotts (had a bad small crop), GemSquash, courgettes (4 types), peppers, egg plant, strawberries that I was given to harvest new runners, 10 tubs of Spuds..  

Garden shares: Spuds, onions, beans - dwarf and runner, marrows, asparagus pea..

Greenhouse: GemSquash

Hopefully I will be allocated an allotment sometime...  :)  the gardenshares are a problem as 1 has too much mares tail and the other is very shaded so giving them both up....  :(

Any chance of a photo as it sounds very interesting? :)
Cheese makes everything better.

Excellent effort!

Shows you what can be done if you can't get a plot but are willing to put a bit of thought and effort into it.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
