What are you growing for the first time this year?

Every year I try to grow something I have never grown before. Last year I had another go at Samphire. The first time I tried a few years ago, I didn't even get germination. Last year I got germination of six seedlings, that grew to an inch tall, but got no further. This year I have ordered some Babington leek bulbils, and some Rocambole or serpent garlic seeds. I'm thinking also of some Agretti. Has anyone grown these before? Any tips?
Grows on the coast in salt marshes/sea water.
"Marsh samphire .....Salicornia europaea is a succulent halophyte (a plant that grows in salt water), with vibrant green fleshy stalks and finger-like leaves"
Have a look at this James Martin in Pembrokeshire in a canoe harvesting rock samphire Crithmum maritimum from the sea shore rocky cliffs.
Not a first but am trying PSB here after a gap of 20 years or so because I kept forgetting to buy or order seeds for the Belgian garden.

I may try my hand at potatoes this year.
(I have been having so much fun)
No idea why. I hate the bu§§ers.
I think it’s the challenge.
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
