Welcome aboard from Ohio, Kim!  Since you are going into summer, be sure to post some pictures of your gardens. Those of us in the northern hemisphere enjoy seeing gardens that are still growing. Very Happy

Welcome , if you are fit enough have you started your own home made compost making yet ?  It's the very soul of our soil less growth medium , along with Mel Bartholomew's grid spacings for seeds .

 Tell us more about how you started and if you have migrated over from soil to soilless growing ?

Thanks plantoid sure do make my own compost and yes I follow the metric version of Mel's book to some extent
I originally had long row veggie garden but found it easier to brake it up into smaller beds I have got some root intrusion from next doors trees so have gone to wicking beds this year to stop roots and to save on water here in the hot Aussie summer

glad you\'re here Kimbo!
So you're heading into summer now.  It will be fun to watch your veggies grow while I'm  sitting by the fireplace in the midst of winter here in New England, USA.  

I'm interested in seeing your wicking beds.  Can't imagine what that is.

Kimbo, When folks in the Northern Hemisphere are snowed in, they love seeing summer photos from down under.
