Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Grow

Direct from the fridge

I decided that my entry for this challenge should be fruit and vegetables. I don’t grow anything myself and won’t even take credit for the apples that the tree provides me with because apart from having it pruned I leave it to its own devices most of the year.

I like the crunch of an apple

So I turned to the fridge. Normally that would not be a lot of help either. I buy most of my vegetables frozen because I simply can’t go to the shops for fresh stuff whenever I like, well I  could but it is a long walk and I don’t like asking people to drive me all the time. Also I really hate chopping things.

However, as it happened I bought a Savoy cabbage and half a cauliflower yesterday. Today when we arrived at the Op Shop our Wednesday co-worker had left a pile of small pumpkins for us to share. I only took one, all I need and I have to admit I took it because I wanted to photograph it more than I wanted to eat it.

Not sure what I am going to do with this.
Savoy cabbage. This is my favourite type of cabbage.
Cauliflower from the local supermarket.

Here is some fruit, I like to have a lemon or two in the fridge.

A fresh lemon and a not so fresh one behind it.

Finally ending where we began with apples grown at a local orchard. We live in Tasmania’s biggest apple growing area. I would never buy apples that came from outside the state no matter how badly I wanted one.

These are not my apples but they are locally grown in Geeveston.


I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
