- Rhubarb - found this in the garden when we moved in many years ago buried under all the rubbish left by the previous owners. Not so good this year as the weather has been very dry.
- Jerusalem Artichokes - planted a few tubers a couple of years ago and now have a small forest of plants. Great for soups or roasted with beef or chicken.
- Courgettes - Two different types this year; a yellow globe type and a more standard green one.
- French, Broad and Runner beans - Heritage seeds from Ryton, it will be interesting to see how they taste.
- Onions - grown from sets from HAAGA
- Leeks - Heritage plants from Ryton, these will see me into winter
- Salad Greens - a mixed set of leaves

- Aubergines - small lilac globes some being grow in the greenhouse and some in the sunnier area by the greenhouse.
- Tomatoes - Several heritage types from Ryton including one called Giant Green Sausage growing on the patio in large, deep planters.
- Herbs - several types of mint, sage, hyssop, rosemary, bay and lime balm.
- Two apples - an old Cox type (was in the garden when we arrived) and a Egmount Russet - my favourite apple.
- Victoria Plum - far too large for our garden because of the rootstock it is on but it produces buckets of juicy flavourful fruit every year. Plenty for me and plenty for the birds!
