Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland

What's growing in the garden?
Not much, to be honest. However, a lot changes in eight days! When I returned from my work trip on Wednesday, a bunch of carrots were ready to harvest, the snow peas had grown like crazy and fallen over in the wind, two of the lettuces had turned into small trees, there's an abundance of rhubarb (time to make some of my favourite kind of jam), the coriander had bolted and gone to seed, the arugula has flowers, the tomatoes are doing okay... but my lack of planning means once that lot has gone, there won't be much to follow other than my successive lettuce plantings. So soon I am going to dig it all up and add plenty of compost and plan some winter crops.
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.
