    As for the vegies, it is seasonal, but we will have Tomatoes , Lebanese Cucumber, Thyme (Zaatar), Mint, Parsley, broad beans (season just finished), snow peas, silverbeet, etc..

    I am more the \\\"Tree man\\\", I have other members of the family looking after the vegies.. each his/her own patch
    remember to plant garlic in between your vegetables.
    carrot flies, worms and the like HATE garlic and your crops will be protected.
    Onion works the same as well but Garlic is better.

    ofcourse i top this up with Snail/Slug pellets and vegetable powder as well as Tomato Powder.

    as for beans we just planted some 2 weeks ago and they are already growing fast.

    the heavy rain we had a few days ago made my work in the garden more cumbersome.
    weeds grow quickly in between the vegetables when it rains and i spent half a day just removing them.

    l3ama so fast they sprout.

    well Shreek the rain has made my garden like a jungle.

    The tomatoes plants have doubled in size in over a week. I have about 20 tomatoes growing between 3 plants, the cucumbers have nearly taken over every thing. I've never grown eggplant before but its going great guns. The rain has been a blessing saves me watering when I leave for work at 4am.

    I use planter boxes and grow them out the front because my dogs ripped every thing up last time I tried in the backyard.

    Try par-boiling your vegetables (carrots and such) then they can be frozen.
