oooh, me too! I'm a newbie to this & have recently moved to a drier beach climate (my mum has always grown my gardens in the past in a wetter inland climate). I planted seeds a few weeks ago & with regular watering & weekly liquid plant feeding lettuces sprouted in 4 days & everything else in about a week!!! Despite the lack of rain here & water rates we have water  4 garden as hubby put in a 275litre water collection container; clever man!!!  Cost: under $200. Only takes about an hour or 2 of rain to fill it!!! Plus I read gardening books esp the Yates month by month gardening guide (& mum's only a ph call away!) Happy gardening, my fellow savers, this is THE most fun to contribute to my family's needs; SOOO relaxing to get out there in the cool of the evening...
