The plants that I mentioned earlier are in a vegetable garden, in which i'm experimenting with Bonfils grain growing as part of a standard vegetable rotation. Very early days still, but full of potential.
If you're interested, there is a bit more detail on my blog.

deano..i am curious why are you using chickory (do you use the roots for food?) in your "cover crop mix?? and mints have always scared me when outside a container as they travel so easily and outgrow so much of the rest they are around....why did you choose mint in your mix?
looking forward to your answers...elisabet
