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.

Stupice Tomato

Ordinary  in size

 ordinary in colour...

but extraordinary in taste

This is a terrific tomat, it sure is one of my favourites.

Red and rather small slicing tomato, it is one of the earliest in my garden. Stupice tomato is an heirloom from former Republic of Czechoslovakia. The Stupice often sets blossoms at cooler temperatures than other tomatoes, which suites my climate perfect .

This is the first of my 32 tomat varieties to ripen this year. I grow it in a container in front of my garage and last night as I came home from work I ate it - Oh...what a treat!
