SIMPLE AND YUM

ON THE VINE

Guerilla MARKET GARDENING • A small group of enterprising young Melbournites have started a market garden in suburban backyards. Here Pippa Arnold and Lucille Kelly tell how it came about, and next issue they finish the tale.

Nic’s pallet sheds • Give me a pallet and I’ll build anything. Nic is a friend of Jo Roberts in northern Tasmania. His talent for building things with pallets is impressive, and here Jo describes how Nic built two shed with free pallets. Dropdead awesome.

FALAFEL TABOULI TZATZIKI FLATBREAD Repeat • Gary Thomas, our elusive garden chef from Daylesford in Victoria, tells how to make this superb quartet of Middle Eastern dishes — or does he?

THINGS WE’VE LEARNED • Tanya Jenkyn, EG’S much-admired herbalist from Esperance in WA, has been on a journey of owner-building lately. Here she presents a few lessons she’s learned along the way.
