LACHLAN. SMALL FRUITS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 18 January 1934
LACHLAN. SMALL FRUITS. The small- fruits season is pro gressing very satisfactorily in the, Lachlan district, which is the home of small fruits in Tasmania. Some of the very early crops ? of raspberries suffered from the result of continued dry weather and frosts in early, December, but the soaking rain of last week has been a won derful pick-up to the latter crops, and1 they are . now turning off good quality fruit. The black currants are, generally speaking, a good crop and well growfi— — much larger than is usual. There . seems to be a ready market for black currants and raspberries, but it is unfortunate that there ' is not a market in Tasmania this Rea son for either plums or cherries, which, of course, will mean a big. loss to many growers of this kind; of fruit. ; -J There is a record number of fruit pickers engaged in and _ around Lachlan this year, due mainly to the continued dry weather, which caused the fruit to ripen very sud denly instead of the gradual process of other...

They are carrying 11 tyres, and the radiator of their caravan is studded with the auto mobile badges of eight different countries. The journey from Perth to Ade laide occupied 18 days, and at one stage on the Australian desert, they came close to a water famine. The caravan became stuck in a sand drift, and both their water cans tipped over, spilling every drop of water they had.

The roughest track they have , travelled up to date was in Turkey, I where their 3-ton caravan bogged' 22 j times in eight days, and was rescued j every time by bullock waggons. | ENTERTAINED BY KHAN.

Fires in the Huon ALARMING OUTBREAKS. MUCH DAMAGE TO FORESTS. On Tuesday last, when the temper ature in the shade reached the high est point for this summer — 91 deg. fires occurred in various parts of the Huon district, the most alarming j being in the vicinity of the Russell and Denison Rivers, and in the val ley of the Arve, where large areas of forest timber were destroyed, as well as some privajte property and a sawmill.

Correspondence 5 ? , I I THE BRITISH FRUIT MARKET. ' To the Editor. ! Sir, — Apple marketing is having ? great prominence at the present1 time, and in almost every instance the grower is being blamed for send- : ing either too much fruit, or the ! wrong kind and quality.
