2_0_6, your veggie/herb garden looks amazing. I'm doing a smaller version, in raised beds too. I just hope they get enough direct light (very ironic in Adelaide)! But in winter of course the sun is quite low, even here at 35 degrees South, and the garden bed I'm using is between the house and a high fence, facing west.
My previous attempts at herbs and root veggies have mostly been terrible. Coriander, basil, radishes, traditional carrots... all simply quickly go to seed, and I don't know why. Bugs the hell out of me.
I've almost finished my summer crops:
(all very successful)
(limited success, but only a very small area)
tomatoes (hopeless; I don't know why my wife still tries to get me to persist!)
My winter seeds are all sprouting well, especially my snow peas! Also growing:
carrots (miniature globular ones)
cauliflowers (first time; not optimistic!)
I've built a greenhouse, which I'll deploy from about early June.
Winter is coming!
