Vasili's Garden is Back!

A few years ago, when we were living in our garden-less apartment, I enjoyed watching Vasili's Garden on SBS. It's a very informal garden show, going around to people's gardens- at the more obsessively vegetable oriented end!!- and Vasili chatting with the owners, often older European migrants. It was informal, as though it is just a video camera filming one person showing another their garden. It was a nice change from the standard scripted gardening shows, but evidently didn't have the audience that SBS wanted, and vanished, to be replaced by the more conventional Costa's Garden. My aunt (hi!) just put me onto the fact that Vasili's Garden continues on Channel 31, which is a Melbourne community tv station.

Like the rest of the world, we don't actually get Channel 31 on our telly, so I was pretty pleased to find the episodes are on line. Have a look! And remember, every comment is an entry to win the June Callistemon seeds giveaway. Let us know what you think. Maresi!
