So I decided to do a quick plan of our back garden showing where things are growing at this stage (obviously this will become out of date relatively quickly so, yeah...)
Not included in this (yet) are the chillis, tomatoes, mint, peppers and mushrooms that I am cultivating inside.
Also a useful idea I picked up off a friend's facebook (sadly I can't find the link but credit where it is due for this) is this:
Also this idea is a particularly cracking one, and one I will definitely try next year (I have whisky cabinets to build this year so that will take all my wood working skills up for the time being) is this:

Finally, a little technical tip picked up from a book that the almost-inlaws gave me for my birthday. If you are trying to do a compost heap, turn it regularly. I have not been doing this and when I tried to the other day it proved VERY difficult, especially as I have one of those plastic bin things with limited access and sharp edges (which shredded my hands while I was trying to fork the forking thing over)...
So there you are, top hot tip of the day.
