Last weekend I visited Canberra, Australia's capital city, to catch up with a friend. As well as time in the city we headed out to the nearby wine region and had lunch at Capital Wines. Their cellar door and restaurant is located in a series of stone buildings in a lovely little town some way from the vineyard and has a fantastic kitchen garden, orchard and chickens.

|Tomatoes are planted against reo mesh to support them|
|Beans climb up an arch in the centre of the garden|
|Zucchinis obviously thrive in Canberra's climate, the surrounding farms |
were all growing them too.
