    Hi all great site here looking forward to exploring it further. I am a new (ish) gardener that started digging about a year ago and hasn’t stop since! Had successes with tomatoes,cucumbers, watermelon, beans,cabbage, capsicum,broccoli,lettuce and a few herbs as well. I am on a steep block which provides challenges for gardening including limited sun and difficult access but all is good.
    Cheers.. Paul

    Welcome Paul, it's certainly an addictive hobby.

    Are you gardening in raised beds, or straight into the soil?

    Welcome to the forum, Paul. Just because your property is steep, or has limited sun, doesn't mean you can't grow things. You just need to work out what will grow where.

    Mate I was thinking today whether or not it was addiction or obsession but either way I guess it’s the same result! I have built raised beds running both in to the slope and along it if you know what I mean. I also do “random plantings” straight in to the ground which have worked well for capsicum and some Roma tomatoes... the garden started as a way to stabilise and pretty up the dead grass that was there when we bought the place so it wasn’t initially intended to be for edibles...I have a mix of everything now so its working well and will forever be a work in progress.
    Cheers
    Paul
