    Default What do you grow in your veggie garden

    I want to start a mini veggies garden in our new outdoor area that is partly shaded by a shade sail & am
    Looking for suggestions for things easy to grow... I'm worried herbs will die in our hot summers and cold winters. So far all I've planned is tomatoes!

    Hardy herbs such as thyme, rosemary, oregano, should grow all year round and become permanent fixtures. We also have kale and chillis all year round- they just keeps on giving. Plant your tomatoes in about August/Sept just as Spring is coming and they ought to be okay for picking anytime around xmas-feb.

    Thanks! Is there a particular type of lettuce that grows better?

    Something like butterhead lettuce goes well with a quick growth, or even rocket or the leaves of beetroots are nice. My rocket always goes to seed though...
