    No worries, Mark! I've been busy the past few months so haven't been able to get on here much (a 1 year old will do that to you, as you'd know) Cheers!

    Cheers! Thanks for the info. I'll be sure to check them out in the future. I'm still trying to find the best sites online for ordering. I've only used Diggers so far.

    Thanks Mark :D Although he can't walk or crawl yet, he loves being in the garden. I have started to write down some field notes regarding my crops as I have an extremely bad memory, so that will definitely help in the future! Thanks for the kind words and I hope to learn a heap off everyone...
