I have very little idea about gardening.
I am a 'learn as you go', 'trial and error', 'jump in with two feet', 'don't look before you leap' kinda gardener. If all else fails throw some worm juice on it - :-)
In our little house we have a small kitchen garden. It has been lovely to potter in, and the kids and I spend a lot of time ladybug and worm searching. I am getting more knowledgable, slightly, but basically we just all love it as a hobby and when it pays dividends we are thrilled!!!
So we have many tomato seedlings (out of season,) some rocket, and quite a few pumpkins. Plus herbs, basil and oregano currently.

At least it will keep us busy instead of obsessing about how tiny our house is with 5 people and how we are a perfectly sized house that is in Brisbane in two pieces : )
Have a great weekend!
