You could divide up the plot and acidify part of it then you could grow anything

Better lime rich than acid.

Legumes such as peas and beans, legumes, salad crops, courgettes, squashes, carrots, parsnips, leeks, onions - in fact almost everything.

Potatoes may have skabby skins but will yield OK. Add plenty of manure to reduce skabbiness.

Rhubarb and raspberries like acid soil but will be ok with plenty of manure.
