What are the Most Successful things that have grown on your Plot?

If you click on 'comment' you will be able to reply to this post.

The most successful things I've grown in my short time as a plot-holder are tomatoes, leeks, rocket (in greenhouse), pak choi (in greenhouse) and strawberries.

Someone suggested to me that the chalky SW facing plots we have would be ideal for growing grapes - anyone tried this? Tenantry Down wine.....

Globe artichokes do well, water heavily occasionaly in dry spells and they have been known to produce three crops when a kind spring starts them early. After cropping raze to the grounds and top feed with ash or a comfrey stalk mulch.
Spring green (sown end aug) and tall brassicas do well, staked and covered first with chicken wire tunnels then thrown netting. Arctic King lettuce never fails, except in the coldest winters; sown in open, direct, end of august'ish. Last year managed to get a cracking crop of outdoor aubergines, peppers and a few small melons, all short season varieties from http://www.realseeds.co.uk/.

Does anyone with a full allotment want to halve it with me? I have tried to get on the waiting list, but without success and don't think I could manage a full plot anyway. However, if you're finding yours a bit much and would like someone to take half of it on, please leave a message at john.hoye@btinternet.com and I'll get back to you. Thanks v much!
