Growing what I need

After much trial and error and contributions to The Boys swear jar, I finally seem to have the rotating chook pens cow proof. So it's time to make this little patch of Lantanaland productive.

One of my endless problems is the fascination with the interesting and odd when it comes to plants. I need to ignore that and grow carrots, zucchini, onions, snow peas, tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, silverbeet, ginger, chillies, potatoes and garlic. The problem is that I have grown only two of these in a way you would class successful over the years.

Still, I figure that this is my best chance yet, the hose reaches the garden beds, it is well fenced, well fertilised and I have to walk past it every day to milk the cows. This is very important as I usually remember to water about a week later than is needed. We shall see how we go. Advice welcome.
