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.

PICK ME - she says - Rubus idaeus

Pick me! she says...

Yes my yellow raspberry is a she. This Rubus idaeus is called 'Allgold' or sometimes 'Fall gold' I think it is a perfect name for this sumptuous and delicious berry. But you have to pick it fast or she falls easily to the ground. I often just hold my hand underneath the cane and shake it gently.

I must try to put a plant or two in a large bucket and place it into the greenhouse and see how late I can harvest these berries. You can harvest the Rubus idaeus 'Allgold' twice per season first in July and secondly during the autumn months. Isn't that just amazing?

Såhär säjer Herbert om Allgold Risarp.

Remonterande gul sort. Rik avkastning, välsmakande. Lätt Jord, zon I-III. Urval har skett i sorten under en lång följd av år, vilket har medfört en tidigare skörd och en större mängd bär och bärstorlek.
Remontera innebär att man först skördar på sommaren, sedan fortsätter sorten att ge skörd som hösthallon.
Skaka ner Allgold. Då de är guldgula är de fullmogna. Särskilt när kärlet med plantan är inställt i växthus på senhösten, är den bästa skördemetoden.

Ni måste besöka Herbert och Ingeborg på

...and here at last another simply delicious one, 'Lucia' and more about her in Tyras Garden.

The Greenhouse and potager in September - GBBD

This post, 'The greenhouse and potager' was originally uploaded and written by Tyra at the blog The Greenhouse in Tyra's Garden.

September pictures from my potager and greenhouse.

The harvest continues and just now I have a lot of plums to take care of. Today I've just made some jars of lovely plum marmalade and some chutneys, I think that will be nice to have together with all the up-coming winter-food. Created one totally new recipe with plums, added a small amount of rom, chillie and also YOGI tea 'Jamaica blend' in it, you will find the recipe in Tyra's Garden on Friday

September i trädgården är väl alldeles underbart, skördefesten fortsätter och nu kommer frukten, alla härliga äpple och plommon. Just nu skördas det plommon och då kokas det marmelader och chutneys. Satte ihop ett alldeles nytt recept på en lite annorlunda plommonmarmelad hela receptet på hittar du i Tyras Trädgård här kommande fredag.

This time I'll show you the roses that are 'in floribus' on this Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. I planted these in 2007, please see the chart below for the names. It is just nine o'clock then I took these pictures and the dew from the night is still there and making the petals a bit heavy.

Happy gardening / Tyra
