Abstract

[Extract] From March onwards it is “autumn” in Townsville. New pea sprouts rupture through the soil in two neat rows while cucumbers climb the trellis nearby. Ever faithful to this time of year, corn stands to attention as it extends it arms towards the sky, while tomatoes protest to the restraint of wooden garden stakes by finding new ways to ramble and spread out in any direction they find. This is my garden in the traditional working class suburb of Railway Estate. It is a utopia of production, which fulfils an unrequited requirement to feed the household in an age where mass food production undercuts seasonal eating and sparks rebellion through the slow food movement. Every night as the hose sprinkles over my aspirational feast, I ask myself what would Henry Treloar do?
