Harvest

September 10, 2010

It’s September – it’s autumn – and it’s time for harvest. And yet the harvest for this season has been going on for months since summer:

In my garden we have had strawberries, raspberries, plums, apples (now!) and different vegetables such as asparagus, salads, radishes, parsley, dill, peas, tomatoes – and more……

It’s so lovely to be lucky having your own garden! And to be able to harvest all that fresh “green gold” just outside your home.

This year I haven’t been posting about this here – there is lots of stuff here for the future 😉

But now it is time for a post (or two) about the harvest this year.

It is not the same vegetables, berries or fruits that give a good  yield every year. This year my  blackcurrants werw simply overwhelming! :

More tha 15 kilos are now in the freezer….

And just now we eat fresh beans nearly every day (and the rest comes down in the freezer), here is what I picked yesterday:

– ready for the weekend here on the kitchen table….

And these I picked from my xxxxxx-tree about a month ago, they are still green – I took this picture yesterday.

But I will not tell you what it is – or why I picked them in august! Not before I make my next post……

What do you think xxxxxx is? And what do you think I use these xxxxxxx for?! 😉

    OMG, 15 kilos are now in the freezer. Wow, that is really a lot of them. In our small garden we have only plums, one tree. It is giving every single day so much plums to eat that after two weeks I am quite full of them. Our garden is mainly a flower garden.

    We have also some blackcurrants in our freezer which got from my wife’s father.

    Happy weekend!

    You can use the blackcurrants for the same as the walnuts!
    …Just put them in 40% alcohol and let them stay there for 14 days. Add sugar to taste and serve in a shot-glass.
    Let the walnuts stay in alcohol until Christmas – or longer.

    BTW: Very good pigtures Truels.

    Well, Michaela and Carsten are right – it is a walnut. And Carsten – it looks like you have been doing the same thing with the green walnuts as I have been doing many times – and recently! More about that in my next post….

    A fabulous garden you have, truels. I know it is a lot of work but well worth it. This morning my husband is digging up potatoes. Those growing in the mountains taste so good ! We had lots of redcurrants this year as well as beans, yellow zucchinis, fennel, tomatoes, salads of course. Such a pleasure to eat fresh fruits from one’s garden. We are lucky, aren’t we ? Thanks for those lovely pictures.
