We were discussing the merits of various veg over a bottle of wine and some beers last night (I know, don't we live on the edge!).

So if you were stranded on a desert island (that just coincidently had a uk climate) and you only had 3 types of veg seeds to sow and grow, what would they be?

Cabbage
Leek
Carrot

All a bit boring , but you did say UK climate, so I think these would give longest span of crops.

If there was plenty of foragable food and you were just growing luxury suppliments then I would go for

Tomatoes
French bean
Courgettes

Is garlic a veg? If so garlic. If not then peas.

I'm sure the Boglin child would want potatoes.
She once declared that she would simply DIE if there were no roast potatoes.

If you had chickens as well you'd be able to have spanish omlette to stave off the munchies.
