I've attached a photo of me in my Vej Mahal (a temple to food) with my geese coming in to get some bean leaves. It was taken in early summer so doesn't look as full-to-bursting as it does just now after a warm rainy summer.
I live in a regional town outside Sydney within the Blue Mountains National Park. It is a cool climate garden quite similar to those of the south of England, except with snow falls every year. Nearly everyone up here grows their veggies in some kind of caged area due to the cockatoos and bower birds, which will decimate your crop within an hour. They are the main pest I have to contend with and this (expensive) solution is my happy place.
