What next?

Just had a very successful harvest of first earliest (happy dancing as we speak). Raised beds with a lot of quality compost. I know not to plants spuds again, but suggestions in what I could put in next, or just leave til next year?

    Lettuce - dwarf French beans - Runner Beans - chard - kale - radish.
    A sprinkle of blood, fish and bone as a top dressing will top up the fertility of the soil and if you have some home made compost mix a little of that into the top of the soil too.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    If you want to produce this summer, more or less any salad stuff ( Mustard mixes, Rocket, Land cress, lettuce, Pak Choi etc.). Still time for Radish, Carrot ( short types ), Beetroot. 
    Depends on your location ( and what the weather has in store for us  too of course !! ) as to whether you will get away with Beans and Mange tout for a decent harvest this year.  You can do various Greens now to grow over winter if your beds are suitable.
    As said, refreshing the bed after the potatoes will help. 
    Seems a shame to leave it bare until next year  :)

    You could plant leeks in as well inter cropped with radishes, lettuce.
