Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
Since late 2009 we've been developing our small suburban garden to grow as much of our own food as possible. We harvest rainwater, compost, have a worm bin and an increasing number of vegetable beds and fruit trees and bushes.

As the Seasons turn...good name for a bodice-ripping soap opera set in an organic garden...

Well, so much for all of the summer veg I was hoping to harvest and preserve! Not the best summer for tomatoes, and my cucumbers and capsicums came to naught (except for the lemon cucumbers which went berserk...) Ah well, on to the next season - planting heaps of autumn veg and herbs. Experimenting with growing my own spices - so far great results with cumin, coriander, and cayenne pepper. Where the heck can I get hold of a black pepper plant, though?
