This year I planted courgettes, tomatoes, runner beans, red peppers and salad leaves.  All have done well so far, with the help of a cold frame to protect the plants.  Slugs and snails are still a nuisance and are managing to get inside the cold frame, so the salad leaves are suffering. I encourage most wildlife but not slugs and snails!
