AUK, did U know that...
Amusing Unnecessery Knowledge:
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.

"This is an improved Hubbard-type squash with orange-red rind, creamy yellow, thick flesh that is very sweet and nutty flavored. The approximate weight for Uchiki Kuri is 1.5 kg or 3.3 lbs. Use in soups, stir-fries and pies. Bred in Japan, this winter squash is popular braised in dashi stock, or for a Thai dish, braised in coconut milk."
We are now in the month of October and I can still harvest some great vegetables from the greenhouse. Here I got a box full of goodies, bell peppers, red hot chilli peppers and some lovely tomatoes; Great White, Plum Lemon, Gardener’s Delight, Green Zebra and last Cherokee Purple this year favourite.
