Farewell (for a short time)

I'm heading off early in the morning to go and teach in Adelaide and then have a week or so R&R (wineries, art galleries, reading, walks, lunches.........it's going to be HARD!)
But I couldn't leave without saying "goodbye"..........and what use is a blog post without a picture or two? Remember the poly tunnel that Bob built in the late winter? Well, it's been producing really well for us. We've already harvested salad greens, bok choy, radishes, carrots and rocket and now the slower growing crops are starting to look very promising - tomatoes, capsicums, chillis, basil - all things that need a little extra warmth here in Tasmania. Here are some pictures:


We've become quite serious about eating what we produce and not really too much else. For instance, tonight our dinner was roast shoulder of veal which had been given to us (delicious!) with roast potatoes from last years' crop, new beetroot, roasted; new carrots and peas and spinach with garlic ginger and sesame oil. Apart from the condiments and the gift of meat, we produced it all!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway - there's still plenty of time, because I won't be drawing it until December 12th after I get back from Adelaide. Just go to the post before this one and leave a message there - it will be a random draw from all the responses I receive.
Hasta la vista , amigos!

Happy trails Susie. So lovely to see you today and especially to have you sharing your growing knowledge with everyone today too. The polytunnel is looking very abundant and I bet you'll be swamped with food by the time you get back. Enjoy your R&R x

Thanks Tanya - it was great today - thanks for sharing your knowledge so generously.....Looking forward to January - I should have fewer balls in the air by then!

Have fun! That sounds like a glorious way to spend a week.

Enjoy the basil, too. Mine's just coming to an end. It's always sad to see it go. No more home-made pesto until next year.

Enjoy the teaching. I always find teaching an excellent opportunity to learn something myself
