Matthew’s nearing the end of his first year on the farm and it’s time to reflect on what’s happened. His stall is breaking even, his vegetable garden is pathetic and he’s not sure he can call his new life a resounding success – at least financially. He certainly needs inspiration on the gardening front, and so visits a friend who has set up a farm on similar principles as his own, except that he has been doing it longer, and it’s commercially successful. Resolved, he returns home to work in his vegetable garden: to plant out and possum-proof it. Matthew wants to celebrate the connections he’s made during his journey, whether through sourcing local produce or seeking advice and help. So his finale is cooking up a feast for old mates and new friends.
