I've tried red cabbage this year & it seems to be doing well. I've got a raised bed full of it.
The runner beans are doing well. I always plant them with sweet peas & they look lovely growing together. The sweet peas encourage the bees into the garden & so more runner beans are pollinated. You have to keep picking the sweet peas on a daily basis though, to stop them going to seed. On the up side, it means you always have a vase full of beautiful smelling sweet peas on the kitchen windowsill. The runner beans are starting to flower, so I'm hoping the beans will start to grow shortly.
