I just moved into a new place. I want to start a garden on my balcony.

I live in Brisbane, Australia. The balcony I'll be using faces north, and will likely be in full sun most of the day. I'd like to grow a variety of kitchen herbs and perhaps some flowers in this area to brighten things up a bit. I also have some area available which is in full shade and very sheltered (a semi-outdoor stairwell area). I have around 1 sq m in each location. I'd also like to grow some tomatoes, capsicum, and chillies, but I know that may not be possible in the limited space I have available. I prefer to keep things organic and that sort of jazz. Oh, and have no idea how to maintain said garden - help there would be lovely too.
Here's the other kicker: I'm on a budget of about 100AUD, absolute max. Anyway, please share you thoughts and planning resources! I am totally at sea when it comes to this, and need help.
