Try runner beans or some of the brassica family. Spinach beet will rapidly give a good crop.

Yes it was heartbreaking having to grub up all those bushy plants, which I had grown from seed. Tumbling toms, beef steak, plum toms, and even the 'virus resistant' varieties. Onwards and upwards as they say!
