Backyard Kiwis


Thank you to hilbarn box customers Reuben and Kate who alerted us to their next door neighbour's magnificently laden kiwi fruit vines - in downtown Launceston! While picking enough fruit, we hope, for next week's boxes we were keenly observed by a pair of sweet silvereye birds. So copious is the harvest (how, in the dead of winter?) that neither beak nor hand seemed to make the slightest mark on the number of bronzed and furry kiwis. We're very grateful to home owner Emma (and her father Ken) for letting us raid the sun-trap of a garden (even on a cold winter's afternoon). Enough for next week's boxes, thank you, and maybe a second pick soon?

I was very excited to see the little brown fuzzy kiwifruits in my box yesterday - and I'm suprised to hear they grow in Launceston! Thanks so much :)
