    If you could only grow veg from September until June using SFG (probably only 6-8 squares) but undercover (Polytunnel) what crops would you choose to be most productive/successful for youngsters?

    I have a few ideas and some things could be started in August to go in as plants, other things could be started with heat and light indoors but KISS is best!

    Hmm, I might have to join in.

    I found an old 8 foot blind in the garage ceiling. Should give enough lats to mark out 7 8x4 foot beds but I think I'll start off with one for now.

    So how many yacon per square them?

    None.............The problem would be disturbing neighbouring squares when harvesting.

    OR 16 squares per plant

    I've seen in planting plans courgettes having two squares - I would have thought 2X2 squares as I cant imagine courgettes fitting into that space.

    Yes, in an ideal world 4 squares would be given to Courgettes. I'm giving them 1 square with the intention of trying to grow them vertically up a cane so they end up something like this:
