    Spring greens? Oh, I'll have to try that. Getting the Celery to grow was fun so a new experiment would be good

    I've heard I might be able to do that with romaine.

    I might have to swing by the garden centre and see if theres anything I can overwinter in frost proof pots ti get established next year.

    If it's a relatively smaller space then I would go for a herb bed - good value for small amounts, all respond well to being trimmed regularly and grow vigorously, and managed carefully will supply you all year unlike a lot of other stuff.
    My other recommendation would be a vigourous rambling rose - they can eat all parts of it, and the twigs are great for chewing and shredding, and again can be harvested regularly with a long growing season (I'm still harvesting branches and flowers from mine) and it just makes the plant grow more.

    I've got a very young Rambling Rosie who is pesticide free, would that do the job?

    I've been considering a Kew Gardens one as well but am trying to get used to caring for roses. I'm upset I've had to spray my first bed of them due to aphids so they can't be munched on

    It would, but make sure the first year or two that you don't knock it back too much, it needs to develop good roots and strong growth to be able to be used regularly. Worth the wait though if it's anything like mine!! And it's worth allowing some of the longer branches to grow before cutting, not just trimming little bits, cos my guys adore chopping the branches into 3" pieceswith their teeth and nibbling away at it.
