Before John and Bev arrived in Autumn of 2009, the vegie patch had gone to seed. One year on, under their loving care, it is now a bountiful supply of fresh fruit and vegetables. Because of the island's temperate climate and lack of frosts, a surprising variety of foods are successfully grown there.
John and Bev keep a garden diary, with notes on what worked well and recommendations on what to do differently regarding planting schedules and the like.
Anyone who came to the island in March or April was given a never ending supply of the sweetest cherry tomatoes you're ever likely to feast on. What wasn't consumed straight from the vine, Bev bottled as a tomato sauce for future cooking sessions.
If you're ever shipwrecked here, there's no chance you'll starve.
