Not having enough space in your garden is no longer an excuse for not growing your own produce as the Mornington peninsula Shire has approved a proposal for residents to grow produce on their nature strips (still getting used to calling it a nature strip.  In Perth where I trained as a professional gardener we called it the ‘verge’ but as I am now doing garden maintenance on the peninsula I’ve got to get with the locals) anyway it’s a great idea.  I think you’re meant to share with your neighbours. Approvals will have to be granted by the council.
Once planted vegetables should be fertilised fortnightly with a product like Seasol or any fishmeal which will keep the new leaf production sweet and tasty.
You don’t want the neighbours complaining about the quality of your produce!
