|The June garden gets greener everyday!|
|Abundant and diversified harvest : juneberries top|
right, strawberries under, small green peas
down left and linden flowers top left
(for herbal tea).
|Someone fancy herbal tea? Here peppermint, spearmint and lemon balm|
promise a tasteful evening.
|My harvest of a day, literally up to the rim, decorated with a stem of basil of the variety|
"African Blue". On days when the tomato harvest was even bigger -
like shown on the next picture, I used to freeze those big red tomatoes, a variety
called 'Pink Vernissage' from Solana. They make an
amazing tomato sauce by the way. The two other varieties are
'Orange Grape' (a cherry size, delicious tomato, it was the first year I was trying it)
and 'White Currant', a raisin size variety that I keep cultivating each year.
|One of the many ways to use my potatoes : homefries!|
|In August, Scarlet Runner Beans (vines adorned with tiny red flowers that are climbing the balcony), daylilies of many colors (the beautiful two-tones orange and the wine-red are both fabulous varieties) and mullein (yellow flowers on spires) enliven the glorious garden!|
|Herbs harvested : Top left, 69g of mustard seeds, |

and down middle, fennel seeds.
