In my garden, I have (depending on seasons):

-Lettuce
-Silverbeet
-Parsley
-Mint
-Tomatoes
-Lemons
-Oranges
-Cherries
-Plums
-Zucchini
-Spinach
-Chilli
-Onion (sometimes)

We have done strawberries, watermelon and tomatoes. Was so surprised strawberries grew so well, I thought theyd be tough to get to grow.

Strawberries I found out are incredibly low maintenance. I even forget half the time I have them. I planted some in my front flower garden about four years ago. I do nothing but water them and eat the berries.

I agree - same with raspberries and chives. I don't do anything and they come back bursting each year.

First year I tried to garden and planted tons of things, only to be eaten by the local deer. We have a LARGE deer population in my neighborhood. (just counted 13 deer on my front lawn this morning while sipping my coffee. Apparently they love hostas. Sigh.

But I took measures and they are finally staying out of my backyard so next growing season, I will go back to gardening. This year I just have herbs and tomatoes tentatively planted to see if my backyard is truly resistant.
