Jonathan Sturm (alias The Pompous Git) lives at Franklin in the Huon Valley of Southern Tasmania, Australia. In recent times, he owner-built his and his wife's dream home. In times long past he was an organic market gardener, but these days contents himself with a home vegetable garden. He is the author of the popular book, Complete Organic Gardening, and has written computer, lifestyle and gardening articles for several periodicals. He was a member of the DayNotes Gang, an early coalition of bloggers. These days, he is semi-retired and writing furiously.
