Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Thursday, July 1, 2010
Aside from the many varieties of apple available here, the range of potatoes in your local supermarket or fruit market in Tasmania is amazing. Kennebecs (bought today at 49 cents a kilo), Dutch Cream, Pink Eyes, King Edward, Kipfler, Bintje, Spunta, Bismark and loads of others with names I forget. I'm working my way through the varieties. Gone are the days at the Dee Why fruit market when you could get either brushed or washed potatoes (generic variety), new potatoes and some pink Desiree ones.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
