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.

Aubergine - Solanum melongena

I've just harvest my first aubergine for this season and  if I may say I think it it stunning...I feel like a proud mum. I like the flowers too it is kind of pretty don't you agree?

Now I have to decide how to prepare my little darling, usually I slice it up and gratinate it in the over with some lovely parmesan cheese on the top. When it is luke warm I add my home-made italian dressing... oh I can almost taste it now.

Oh Tyra,
I have missed visiting here... It has been an odd summer for me. So glad to see your magic touch is still alive and well. What a beautiful specimen! I am sure you will make it delicious too. Lovely photos! Kram Carol ;>)

Åh, så härligt med egen aubergine! Längtar till ett större växthus - då ska jag också prova:) Det vattnas i munnen av dina bilder. Tack för dem,

Thank you Carol for your warm words. I wish you a lovely August weekend.

Madame C Vet du mina auberginer står inte i växthuset, jag tycker att de får så mycket löss på sig där. Trevlig Helg!
