Little Veggie Patch Deck of Cards
Shortlisted for ABIA Australian Illustrated Book of the Year 2013.
Growing up in an Italian family, for Fabian Capomollo, Sunday lunch would always consist of loud arguments, pasta, veggies from the garden, and would finish with an espresso and a selection of ripe fruit from the backyard orchard. All Mat Pember's childhood memories revolve around his Nonna and Nonno's backyard near Fremantle, WA. The veggie garden, the enormous garage, where the pork and fennel sausage would hang drying from the ceiling beams, checking the chook shed for eggs, and then looking what was ready for picking in the huge, rambling vegetable patch. Fabian and Mat are The Little Veggie Patch Co, an incredibly busy Melbourne-based business that specialises in helping people grow their own food.
