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.

A New Year and a New Calendar

This post A New Year and a New Calendar was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius-Lindhe in the blog The Greenhouse in Tyra's Garden

Here we go again...Let's start all over folks!

2011 and another exciting growing season starts. So far I my 'green' hands are still clean I have manage to keep calm. Although I must admit it starting to itch - I want to get dirty!

Today I have gone thru my seed-bank (picture below), organizing and planning for the growing season 2011. Also today, I opened my brand new calendar from Seed Savers Exchange. I am proud to say that I’m a member of SSE, I’m supporting their effort to save the world’s diverse, but endangered, garden heritage for the future generations. I think that 99% of my seeds for Tyra's Garden are heirlooms, I find them so fascinating. And GMO in my garden... is a big NO-NO!

This year’s calendar has such beautiful veggie pictures by David Cavagnaro; first one out is ‘The Potato’.

Collage with D.Cavagnero's wonderful veggie pictures, they are all from the new calendar.

Åh, vad härlig den ser ut, kalendern! Jag var själv på vippen att bli medlem i fjol, men av någon anledning blev det inte av. Kanske bör jag ta mig samman i år....
