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 November....

......and all the wonderful colours are gone. But now you can enjoy the structures. You can see the structures of the garden, trees and landscape, unobtrusive yet dramatic features. The frost turns all things into something interesting, the glass windows of the greenhouse gets fantastic 'roses of ice' and the leaves gets edging of crystals. The sun is low over the horizon especially up here in the north and that makes the colours soft and gentle.
The greenhouse in Tyra's Garden early morning, late November.
'Roses of ice' on the glass windows of the Greenhouse.

Crystal edging on the wintergreen leaves.

Someone lit up my Greenhouse! It's the morning sun of course. Early morning late November.

Looking forward to Advent, to light all the candles, have a glass of Glögg (spiced warm wine) served with ginger biscuits and blue cheese..... hmm cosy

November in Tyra's Garden

November, Silence, pale colours almost black and white at the end of November. It's not one of my favorite months but it has it's moments, like this one above. November morning the soil and what is left in the garden smells wonderful. The sun isn't warm but it certainly warms my heart.

Well, I'm almost done with the 'Cleaning-up the garden'.......Who on earth planted +300 pots? were do they all come from :)

Beautiful leaves in Tyra's Garden, yes I left some for the worms....

There are still some food left to be harvest in my ornamental kitchen garden. The striking 'Nero di Tuscana', some celery, leeks and herbs. Cabbage and Kale of course that I'm saving for Christmas.

November can be really damp and cold, then the garden isn't very inviting . Indoors activities seems much more tempting. To work with the computer, make plans for next year projects or cuddle up in the favorite chair with a good book...and a nice cup of tea, hm....
Are for or against November?
