The Greenhouse,

is about growing matters, focusing on my greenhouse and potager. I grow mainly vegetables, herbs and spices but flowers have their given place too. From seed to table, this is the nursery for my living food, we cook a lot of delicious food and I say a potager is the cook’s best friend. The greenhouse makes it possible to grow essential, colourful, warmth loving fruit and vegetables even in this climate such as tomatoes and chillies. My main blog is Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden.

Dahlias and Mushrooms - September

Dahlias in Tyra's Garden.

The Autumn slowly make it's entry, we haven't had any frost nights yet but soon I have to dig up all the Dahlias and store them in the garage. I wrote about tips and ideas for sorting out all the seeds you collect and the same tip is applicable for the Dahlias.

Tips and ideas - Put a tag on the plant when they still are in bloom, write down the height, colour and name. It make it dead easy when you shall plant them again next spring.

September, this month can be marvelous with all the lovely mild colours and fresh and almost nippy air. Long walks in the woods looking for the mushrooms, my favorite is the yellow Chanterelle Chantharellus sibarius it's so delicious. Number two on my list must be the Cep Boletus edulis
Tips and ideas - A good thing about the Ceps are that they are perfect to slice up and dry for later use. suitable for cooking all through the winter months... soups, stews and pastas. yummie.

Hej Tyra
I am from California, but I visited Sweden (and Vaxholm!) in 2000, and that's why I know Swedish words, like "hej" and "tradgard". I saw a greenhouse in Hus och Hem some years ago, so much like yours, and I loved it. How fortunate for you to have such a thing, and to have built it yourself! In California we don't have such cold weather to need a greenhouse. Our growing season is about 9 months a year. But, I'd love to have cooler weather and a greenhouse.
Lovely, lovely blog. Jeannie
(I have 3 beginning,, and think I am becoming a blogging fool!)
