    You should check out a local community garden - they would have so much info and wisdom about composting and worms etc.

    Elleandsam - I didn't mean to imply that seeds will not grow, I'm sure they will if you look after them I'm just somone that needs all the help I can get when it comes to vegie gardens... so seedlings are what I stick to now.

    Haha good!

    I still havent gotten around to it! I will! Eventually! I wish it would just appear already done for me. I wouldn't mind tending to a garden, but I plan to dig it from scratch!

    So beans, cucumbers, lettuces and carrots are all sprouting as well as some flowers. Tomatoes and onions are both doing very well.

    Capsicums, parsley, oregano, carnations, and panseys have all sprouted overnight. Ive ordered some brandywine and cherry tomatoes, okra, watermelon, pumpkin, marigold, basil and a mushroom kit online. Can't wait to start eating from this garden!

    You could cheat and go to bunnings and get a raised garden bed so you don't have to dig. Or do a no-dig garden - you layer some paper and green clippings and soil and organic matter - google it, it is still a fair bit of work but probably easier and the paper forms a weed barrier which you would want anyway (I just need to qualify what I am telling you here - I am a killer of plants but I did a work team building day at a community garden and we did one there and learned about worm farms and compost and all that jazz).

    Or you could do a pot garden Boobycino, just grow everything in pots!
