default Top Five?

Out of curiousity, if you were planning your new veg plot - which five veg (or fruit!) would you absolutely have to include, and why?

Rhubarb - love it and can do loads with it
Raspberries - love them and they are expensive to buy
Beans - runners & French, love them
Potatoes - only new and salad now
Courgettes

Of course there'd still be chillis, tomatoes, peppers & cucumbers in the greenhouse (or polytunnel when I get one) as well as a herb bed and salad bed

NOT maincrop potatos, brassicas or sweedes/turnips ( because I can buy them cheaper from my friendly organic grower 2 miles away)

Early spuds
French and climbing beans
Leeks
Parsnips
Carrots


And of course in the polytunnel

Salads
Tomatoes
Cucumbers
Peppers
Courgettes

Forgot about Swiss Chard - but what would I have to get rid of? Probably spuds as they are cheap to buy and often fall victim to blight here.
