    Taste is so diff, we've got 10 plants I think. DP is a big juicer so we use lots in their. He bulked at the cost to set it up but in the long run it'll pay for itself. Can't wait til it's all done and finished I have the vision in the head

    Oh it definitely pays for itself. We always grow the beefsteak tomato because they're so yummy. But they are $17+ per kg at the shops! We get about 4-5kgs per plant.

    Plus you can't beat knowing what they've come in contact - we been using complementary planting for lest control and organic fertiliser if needed - is so great as well.

    Good thread. I can never succeed in broccoli and we love it. Any tips would be great.
    We usually do the same....
    Zucchini
    Tomatoes
    Carrots
    Mint
    Parsley
    Greek oregano
    Basil
    Capsicum
    Chillies
    Garlic
    Potatoes

    And we have our fruit trees

    Oh I'm glad I came across this thread. I've been considering turning one of my garden beds into a veggie garden but I'm absolutely hopeless with keeping plants alive. H.O.P.E.L.E.S.S. I did a herb garden last year and killed it. I also killed my strawberries. But I'm not a quitter so...

    My youngest is addicted to tomatoes so at least they seem fairly promising. I might have to do a bit more research though.

    I was planning on doing that. Most of my google seemed to take me to the Gardening Australia website.

    Another question - do you all gather the seeds and use them to plant the next season?

    We've not had any success seed saving yet - even from heirloom/organic plants. Still researching to learn more and keep trying!

    I forgot to mention The Diggers Club website is a great resource. They also have an amazing variety of heirloom seeds available.

    I am wanting to use heirloom seeds so will check it out.

    Will not happen until next year but good to be prepared!
