One of the reasons I moved to Tassie was because my mate, Nick Haddow, lived here. And through him, I discovered a whole world of people in the hills of southern Tassie, doing great things, never losing touch with the soil. We started long table lunches together. We made our first television together. We worked the markets together.

When I moved I was writing a book, The Real Food Companion,...

So, our gorgeous friend, Sue, does many things well: she made the stained glass windows in Hedley's room; and the beeswax candles on our dining table; and she put together this beautiful photo essay of Fat Pig Farm. I don't really want to say much else: her work kinda speaks for itself....

Today, we are a different farm. Yes, weโ€™re still custodians of the same 70 acres. Yes, we still grow all our own vegies, all our own meat, most of our fruit and eggs and some of our dairy and serve it onsite in a rare feat of not just paddock-to-plate, but โ€˜that paddock outside the window, to this plate right hereโ€™.

But today, we became a different farm. Thatโ€™s because every person who works...

Hello Folks! Who wants to join us for passata and preserving day? Get in touch with your inner nonna AND nanna and learn some techniques to preserve the harvest. We'll start with passata out in the courtyard and we'll get the tomatoes squished, pureed, poured into bottles and into a hot bath. We'll cook a snack of pizza in the wood oven, smeared with our freshly made sauce before heading out...

Dawn. First frost. We could feel it settling. The sky lightened and the air got colder. And the grass got icier.

It must be autumn. The basket is full of apples and pears. We're still figuring pears out. They ripen off the tree. Apparently if you leave them on the tree they ripen from the inside out and by the time they are soft to touch they're mushy. So with fingers firmly crossed we've taken every pear that comes off with a gentle lift and have left them to ripen on the kitchen bench. I'll let you...

G'day folks! The Real Skills for Growing Food workshop is coming up on April 1 and 2. Or as Sadie prefers to call it, the Skills for Growing Real Food workshop. We're doing it on a weekend! Yay! And it's a bargain: $470 for two days of learning from some truly amazing vegie growers, plus Matthew and Kellie doing all the cooking using food from the farm. It will be an intimate hands on...

Taste of the Huon: the Huon Valley is an apple valley. And a pear, nectarine, cheese, honey, wine, beef and free range pork valley. So we're just a little bit excited about trying food made by neighbours and friends at the Taste of The Huon this coming Sunday and Monday in Ranelagh.

Come on down. Monday is family day. Sunday is Shannon Noll day. Both days are good eating days.

Yesterday went fast. From this glorious start as I pulled the baked beans from the wood oven, to the ten varieties of tomato, roasted red and yellow beetroot, and house cured pastrami (using our own honey) it was a riot of colour and flavour for the Friday Feast. Then a little light relief watching two week old piglets play hide and seek in the long grass.

This is going to be a good night. Good thoughts and conversation and a great documentary about urban agriculture. And if Matthew doesn't have me sorting through 15 types of tomato in preparation for Wednesday's class I'm going.....!

This is our current favourite summer vegetable (thanks to our sturdy steel framed greenhouse which has survived the spring and summer winds). They are padrons, a Spanish pepper that our friend Kath calls Spanish roulette: mostly they are lovely and mild but occasionally, very occasionally, one packs a serious chili punch. Matthew roasts them in the woodfired oven with olive oil, salt, pepper...

Under this big sky you may make out Elsie going into the milking shed. Sent zucchini, beans, honey biscuits and plenty of bacon into The Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart beforehand. Ready for bacon buns and farmers plates out of the red Fat Pig van. We're on the waterfront at PW1. Come down and say g'day to Kellie and the gang.

This is the kind of thing we love: a group of people getting together to celebrate and eat their very own locally grown and reared tucker. If you're up near Tenterfield this March, check out this delicious sounding dinner.

How lovely! An advance copy of the German edition of Not Just Jam arrived in the post. It's a bit of a thrill to have a book translated, even though it's happened with Winter On The Farm and The Deli Book before this. Love the different cover, too.

One week of irrigation worries. Two expeditions onto the dam. Two attempts with the pump. One with jug and a quick hand. And it may not look like much to you, but this small spray suggests we may be back in business. The one pipe feeds the whole market garden and all the pigs, so it's imperative we get it working again soon. Fingers crossed we fixed it right this time.
