    I love this forum!!! I love gardening, and am just rehabbing an old garden that hasn't been used in oh...how long does it take a birch sapling to grow to 6 feet tall?? I just bought this house last fall, and have been working on the garden, removing trees and tilling the soil :) The potatoes are all up and looking fabulous but my greens aren't up yet. We have almost 24 hours a day of sunlight where I live in the north, so we plant late because of late frosts (we had 4 inches of snow June 4th!) but when things start growing, they grow like they are on steroids. Seriously, we have to mow our lawn every 3 days in summer.

    All pictures are still on my camera!

    It is funny how I put things in much earlier than others in the US yet you are picking beans already. Mine are in flower but nothing to pick yet. Peas are nearly ready. Plenty of lettuce and spinach, pulled some baby beets to thin them out a bit.

    Tomatoes aren't amounting to much, really need a green house for them. I haven't a lot of room for one so I have decided to build an 'Eden Project' and get some polythene and build something in a small area I do have.

    The Eden Project is in Cornwall, large domes under which they grow all sorts of exotic plants. When I never had enough room where I was before, I built a polythene greenhouse which worked brilliantly and lasted for three or four years before it needed new polythene.

    I have things to plant on from the cold frame into the ex flower bed. Only problem there is that I buried my mother's old dog there and my darn GSD keeps digging to get him up! Luckily he is 4+ feet deep but she has got to the lime around him!
    Lovely!

    I will get the pictures off the camera later.

    We are behind the UK in planting - the grounds still frozen here when you lot are putting seeds in - and its going to be some time before I'm harvesting beans, tomatos etc - I did get some good asparagus this year though and the rhubarb was better - I moved it further over and seems to have helped

    Well I took some pictures off the camera and couldn't find how to mail them to me or upload them to photobucket. My nephew will show me how. He has my computer I only have the iPad.

    My area is tiny by comparison!

    I never worry about rotational just dig in plenty of horse muck in the fall and it will grow again!

    I think as long as you avoid anything from the same family you're OK - Cabbage, cauliflower, turnip, brussels sprouts, radish, swede. Kohl rabi, kale - not sure if that's the lot but they're the Cruciferaea group if you google that
    The eggplants (aubergines) I planted in the same place that I had tomatos last year are pathetic but the ones I planted where I had brussels sprouts last year are going great
