I stopped at IKEA in Uppsala on the way home from my "summerhouse" and found these adorable new cushions. I just couldn´t resist them, they look a little bit to new and "clean" for the greenhouse but time and the sun will soon fix that. IKEA also had a lot of nice things for the garden, pots, candleholders etc.....no,no, not this time.
This year I´ve promised myself not to plant anything without putting a name tag in the pot. So far it works. I think it´s very annoying to have a plant that you love and you don´t remember it´s name. This is one of this growing seasons missions. Now I´ve been thinking of registering all the plants, that will be a nice thing to do during the cold winter, to catalogue Tyra´s Garden.
Late afternoon, perfect for a break. Teatime in the greenhouse.
The tomato plants are coming along fine I think. I´ve planted 5 different kinds this year. I also laborate with different soil mixtures, exiting stuff. What kind of soil do you use?
Tomatoes in Tyras Trädgård
swedish page with all the different tomatoes
1. Black Russia heirloom.
There is some ideas about growing tomatoes, from Garden Action UK.
Buying tomato plants ready to plant directly outside
Sow tomato seed directly in the soil outside
Sow tomato seed in pots indoors (windowsill)
Sow tomato seed in pots outside with cloche protection
Sowing under fluorescent lights (in the garage or similar)
Comment, don´t be a stranger.
Have a really nice day/TYRA
