  1. Looks like a goer on Serendipity Farm…wonder if we can buy the seeds here? Tomatoes are one of the seeds that we can’t import into Tassie (along with ginger and capsicum/peppers) so hopefully it’s not only available on the mainland.

    • Looks like we have to get back to plan A, meet in Sydney, ( Martin Place ), and swap seeds ..Don’t forget to bring the hat ;)..LOL

      Sometimes I wonder why it is so impossible to import even Australian natives….Must be on UN’s HERITAGE LIST OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

      • Yeah…I will be wearing a HUGE 30 gallon hat like this one so that I can stuff an enormous range of exotic seeds into it, then I will wear an oversized raincoat that makes me look like Frank Spencer so I can have seed packets all down the sides of the inside pockets and HUGE wellington boots to tape more seeds in…I reckon it’s a plan! Customs would NEVER guess and when the sniffer dog goes off the planet at me, I am going to produce a solitary banana from under my bulging hat and say “sorry…I forgot I had this…”
