green fingers?

I am a very amateur gardener - fumbling my way through my garden experiences with no real idea if I do the right things. I prune stuff with gusto, pull off dead leaves, and dead head flowers, but I'm not really green fingered. I'm hoping this will magically change though when I erect my latest purchase this coming weekend:I'm not ready for a grown up's greenhouse yet, so I thought this was a good starting point. I'm scarily excited about growing some veg and herbs in here. I got it from here if you are interested.
I'm mostly wanting to grow tomatoes - a few different varieties, as they are just my favourite thing to eat. Is this normal behaviour for a 33 year old person I wonder?

I am really quite amused by your new greenhouse. I can see you sat in there, cup of tea (or a mojito maybe) in hand, a bit of a snack and pretending to be doing important garden stuff, when you're actually reading a magazine.

How exciting. Being that sort of greenhouse you can pick it up and put it somewhere else if you don't like the original view. Very flexible gardening, that is. x

Good tomatoes, full of flavour, are food of the gods...

You are right to be excited! That first tomato will be wonderful :-)
