    We rent and have big tubs as the soil at this house is rubbish! Literally. Full of building rubble and the first lot we planted in the garden all died!

    But we have herbs (parsley, mint, rosemary and oregano), carrots, sugar snap peas, strawberries, rockmelon, sweet potato, garlic and spring onions. We did have cauli and broccoli, but they took all the space and are cheap at the markets

    I live in a rental so am limited with what i can do. I have a smallish pot garden on the back patio though... i have garden mint, spearmint, sage, thyme, rosemary, parsely, chilli, basil, chives. We have cherry tomatoes although i think they are going to die ( i never have luck with tomatoes even though they are meant to be one of the easiest things to grow).
    We've got a dwarf lemonade fruit tree, alovera, radishes and i like to keep a big pot of loose leaf lettuce so i can just pick as needed.

    I would love to go all out and grow heaps but living in a rental puts a huge damper on that.

    Yeah we are in a rental too.

    But there's a garden shed smack bang in the middle of our tiny yard and so there's about 1 meters by 4 meter space behind the shed that's completely useless. So I'm thinking nobody would mind if I dug it up and planted in it. I'm not even sure they'd notice!

    Though I have dreams of what else I'd do in our tiny yard, there's really no point we won't be here long term.

    Do you have a decent realestate? I would check with them first to make sure its ok, even get it in writing if possible.
    I know people who have lost bond for the most stupid things..like painting the toilet room in the same existing colour because the paint was all chipped and peeling. They got the ok from the owner but only verbally.
    If you can lose bond for making improvements to the property i would just be careful. Thats why i've limited my plants to pots.

    I don't have a green thumb but have wanted a vege garden for ages. Does anyone know where the cheapest place to buy a raised garden bed is or if you have made your own could you give me instructions. I have read that egg cartons make good seed trays is this true?

    Bunnings has nice garden beds. The aluminium kind. And egg cartons are perfect for it. Milk cartons are good too. The paper ones. I bought a little seed raiser box from buntings for really cheap a little while back.
