TGP is this the site? I couldn't find anything there - maybe I am looking in the wrong place!

No tht isn't. I cannot find the one that I had found earlier, but, I googled " growing vegetables in partial shade " and came up with loads. One that I particularly liked is " Try these 10 options " From the Grdening channel.

I love spinach. My plants arrived, so, i will pot them up later. Courgettes, toms, aubergines ( love them ),peppers, and one other. I may go to the garden centre to get some runner beans, but, I am scared of garden centres. I end up spending a fortune.

Don't need plants for runner beans Melanie, so easy to grow from seed!

Yipee, all my new plants are in and looking very beautiful and the rain has started to fall so the watering can is temporarily suspended, I have cleaned out the fish pond and one day this week I will visit the garden centre and get some Maris Pipers for the small veg garden, the front of my house will look a picture come the end of July and I have something like 500 flowering plants to show of, you name it I have got it.

Sounds great. Have you grown spuds before? I'm tempted, but, in my small patch, I think it's a bag or one of those potato growing things. My veg seedlings are doing very well, in the mini grow house. I really need a proper green-house. Where is the sun?

Yes I have grown spuds in the ground and in bags, just make sure you dont plant them in shallow earth at least 8" down or if you have soft earth even deeper, in bags plant them in layers about a foot apart.

Lovely rain today, I wont have to get out the watering can, I planted some dwarf tree lillies a couple of weeks ago and they are just beggining to show.

Cheers Rog. Going to the garden centre for supplies tomorrow. Will get a potato growing thingy, among other goodies. I wish it would stop raining. I need to mow the lawn.

Ok me darling, managed to mow my lawn early this week and now the watering has started from the sky!!!!! Yipee, If I'm not to late dont get early spuds (its to late) I have got "Late early's (Maris Peer) and will plant them as soon as the rain stops, should be ok for August/September, they are ok for Salad, Boil, Chips, Roast and probably for mashing.

What a glorious afternoon. Veg plugs ( which are no longer plugs ) were let out of the grow-house for the afternoon, mowed the lawn, and, did a bit of weeding. Veggies are back in the grow-house. I bought a packet of runner bean seeds on Tuesday, and, put them in a safe place. I wonder where it is.

Try the shed that has umpteen boxes of past seed boxes and planters that have probebly sprouted all over the place, you might even find a birdsnest in there somewhere!!!!!!!! :D
