Hi Whwoz. Great pictures! I was in Tasmania while working on a cruise ship back in the 70s. It's a fascinating place, and the devil is an amazing creature. I've been saddened by the reports of their decimation by disease. I hope they've found a way to help them.

Default Salamanca Market

Thanks folks, sometimes you get lucky with getting the animals to pose. We often do this type of holiday, travelling around, checking out the local zoos. Today was Salamanca Market day, a large market in Hobart with the usual jewellery, craft, soft toys and a few produce stalls. Picked up some tomatoes different to me, will photograph tomorrow, only photo today is one for Worth, an old steam powered loading crane.

Default Garlic

After a couple of dodging rain and wind we went to a garlic farm today before going to family friends for lunch.

Picked up one Creole, Spanish Tierno
Two Turbans, Iris and Master Jack
Two Marbled Purple Stripes, Marbled Blush and one yet to be commercially released 180-4
The only Porcelain available in Australia, Music and 8 Artichokes, Dolovsky, Late Italian, Yabroudi, Kisswani, French Messidrome, Bulgaria AGIA 52, Bulgaria AGIA 49 and Germidour.

Have another 14 varieties at home, looking at selecting out a sub group of these to suit our taste and storage requirements.

Very cool. Most of those are new to me, and I’m not sure if available here in the States.

The grower, Letitia Ware, is very picky about provenance and until she is happy with how a particular garlic is growing, will not release it under a name, hence the one called 180-4. Most of these are in Australia as a result of an import about 15 years ago. We lost a lot of varieties when the Australian market was opened up to Chinese imports. Letitia is current head of the Australian Garlic Industry Association, who did the import and runs Tasmanian Gourmet Garlic, she has a good website.

I thought it was a construction site and they were still in the age of steam.

They maybe a bit slow and behind the times down here in some respects, but they have managed to move beyond the steam age for the most part anyway

Default Oystercatchers, crab and Galahs

Today we left Snug for the Sorell fruit farm and later New Norfolk, from where we shall go to the oldest fish hatchery in the southern hemisphere tomorrow. Salmon Ponds is were the eggs of the first successful import of salmon and brown trout were hatched and later spread around Australia and New Zealand. With weather permitting I will have photos of this area tomorrow.

Before we left Snug we went for a beach walk and saw a pair of pied oystercatchers, a soldier crab and some Galah or Rosy Breasted Cockatoos grubing out some nut grass corms
