4 family favourites

The key to getting the most out of growing your own food is to plant things you like to eat. Here we feature four easy-to-grow vegetables and use them in recipes everyone will love

1 Sweetcorn ‘Mirai Gold’

Although sweetcorn needs space you can’t beat its irresistible flavour. Each plant produces one or two cobs.

• Sow indoors in March/April in deep pots.

• Plant outside in late May/June, spacing plants about 45cm apart in a block, not in rows.

• Pick ripe cobs in August/September.

TOP TIP Squeeze a kernel – a milky liquid means it’s ready to pick.

2 Runner bean ‘Tenderstar’

This french bean/runner bean cross produces a bumper crop of smooth, stringless pods with great flavour.

• Raise plants indoors in March/ April in deep pots to plant out, or sow directly outside in late May/June.
