Crispy beet patties with feta cheese
Forget about the beef burgers, why not make beet patties instead? I make mine with feta cheese and chopped nuts. Delicious and really easy to make!
Using bokashi compost in your garden
One of the best gardening decisions I've made is to start using bokashi. This method is so effective and easy. Give it a try!
Squash patties with fresh herbs
Fried squash patties is one of our favorite dishes here at home. These patties are perfect for lunch or a light dinner. I make mine with my own homegrown squash.
Fertilize with nettle water
After three weeks in the barrel, it's finally time to start using the nettle water in my vegetable garden. I'll do it on a day when rain is in the air.
Summer sowing and birthday celebrations
I recently turned 40 and celebrated by doing a summer sowing! Now, I can look forward to fresh vegetables later this year too. This is how I do it.
My festive red vegetable salt
My red vegetable salt makes even the simplest sandwich look festive. You can use the salt in a salad with a splash of olive oil too. It's delicious!
Mulching my polytunnels
What a challenge! I decided I wanted to start mulching my polytunnels. But this is also one of the most important spots in my garden where I grow so many vegetables. So, how to combine the two? I think I've found a good solution!
Cheesecake with the season's best berries
Cheesecake with the season's berries is one of my favorite desserts. It's the perfect dish for any late summer feast!
Mulching with sheep's wool
I finally decided to try mulching with wool! This is what my first attempt looks like. I think it works really well, and it looks beautiful too!
Ripen tomatoes indoors
Don't put your tomatoes on the window sill to ripen. I ripen tomatoes in a cool and dark space instead. That way, I get enough tomatoes for months since they ripen gradually over time.
Growing Ice Peach: The white peach
Have you ever heard of a white peach? I didn't know anything about them until last year and I knew I had to give it a try. These peaches are not only gorgeous, they taste amazing too!
Soil analysis part 3 – Mulching the polytunnels
It's time to take a look at the polytunnels in the third article about the soil analysis I did in my garden. The soil is doing well, but I need to make some changes to improve the overall quality of the polytunnel soil. And I plan to do it with (you guessed it), more mulch!
