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.

Late harvest - Rose hip and Elderberry

Rose hips and Elderberry harvest - beautiful berries to pick out in the nature. Mother nature just gave them to us free of charge.

This is the last harvest of berries for this season Rose hips and Sambucas nigra and you may very well pick these berries now in November, if you are lucky you can also find Sloe Prunus spinosa. I pick my berries on the path leading down to the lake. They are great berries for cooking. If you are interested I have a few recipes here in Tyra's Garden.

Det här är alltså de sista bären jag nu skördar för den här säsongen. Sist ut är då mina älskade nypon Rosa dumalis och lite fläderbär Sambucas nigra. Jag tycker nypon är helt fantastiskt gott alldeles för underskattade, de är jobbiga att 'skala' men det är värt mödan för de är så sagolika tillagade. Nyttiga är de också (C vitamin).

Wonderful post. I just love Rose hips, apart from cooking, I use them for my homemade beauty concoctions. But let's not go there LOL!

Lucky are those who find, notice and admire the innumerable treasure and gifts that Mother Nature leaves out for us, just about around every corner.

Vet inte riktigt vilken av dina bloggar jag skall titta på. Kommenterar på lite olika.
Gillar verkligen din nyponbilder och nypon pyssel.
Det växthus är bedårande och kommer jag nog att skriva varje gång du visar det
Ha det gott

Hello Tyra;

Our rose hips and all berries are like mush now because of several hard frosts of 14-16 degrees. I notice that the deer continue to eat the hips which must be like taking vitamins to them.

Best garden wishes,
