    Hello Andy, most of the stuff we like to eat, there are other things in nature that like it also. Some things are fairly trouble free and it is always good to grow some of these if you like them e.g. parsnips, rhubarb, blackcurrants (they are shade tolerant), beetroot, courgettes, lettuce (main pest is slugs but usually leave some for you) and squash of various types. Onions and leeks are usually trouble free but can have some serious pests, other plot holders may be able to advise on what they can grow , what pests they get and what protection you may need for other veg you want to grow where you are.
    A potato crop is good to help clear land I find and couch grass is usually easier to remove while you are harvesting them. Courgette and squash are also good at smothering weeds.

    Some good ideas. Thanks everyone. Think I've got a plan in my head, will draw it out and upload a picture later on.
