The front garden is an experiment: it basically faces northeast and is surrounded by houses or walls on all other aspects.  I planted the remains of everything that couldn’t fit in the back and top gardens to see what would work.  Courgettes are incredibly productive, tomatoes are slow but may still ripen before the frosts!
