We live a little off the suburban highway. In fact we're half an hour off the highway. 500m above sea level, in a cool climate, so it's hard to grow yummy summer food. The garden is full of leafy greens and some carrots and brassicas. We have a glasshouse full of tomatoes and a lemon tree (essential for G&Ts) and hopeful apple trees. The chooks do their bit to supply compost and eggs.
Most years, summer temperatures can get up to 28C and even the low 30's but it's a really short growing season. This year has been exceptionally cold and wet, would have loved to have had a greenhouse! I'm still a beginner and learning as I go along but definitely been bitten by the food growing bug!
