Gifts from the garden

Ready to put those green thumbs to the test? April in Tasmania is a great time to plant vegetables.

The cooler climate means you can sow seeds for those staple family favourites including spinach, broccoli, onions, lettuce, rocket, squash and artichokes. Why not get the kids involved too? Pull on your gumboots and gardening gloves and make an afternoon of it. After all, nothing tastes as good as homegrown produce.

Fresh vegetables also make great gifts for family and friends. You could tie them up in ribbon and leave them on the doorstep, or start a free community pantry in your street. It’s an easy way to help those in need and bring a smile to people’s faces.
