    Thanks for asking, sorry I'm only seeing this now. Well I put early and main crop potatoes in it in mid April and have had early potatoes for a few weeks now. The maincrop has also died away so I will be digging those soon. The section of the bed which is a little more workable has a few raspberry canes I planted quite late but my first few raspberries are ripening up nicely.

    I have also had lots of fun in my first year growing with hanging baskets and pots. cherry tomatoes, strawberries, carrots etc

    Monty's heavy clay looks like ideal loam to me.
