Gardening


This year I did less in my garden.

Last year it was the same.
Most of what I planted died. No matter if I bought it or used seeds I have been saving.
Partly the wolves ran over it or dragged the pots through the garden and partly because it is too cold (inside).

I saved all kind of seeds.
Tomatoes, pepper, lemon, mandarin, etc.

At this moment I only have tomato plants.
I started too late with the seeds and inside it did not grow fast.
Only a few weeks ago I planted them outside in what once was my Birca's nest (Birca was my barn owl) to keep them safe for the wolves.

I noticed yesterday the first flower is there so still a long way till I have my own tomatoes. I hope the summer will continue.

Oh men that is so sad. My berries etc all dried. So only had some cherries and still 1 apple on the tree. πŸ™

I think I will make more forest out of it. Good for the wolves, less work and who knows what comes out of it if Mother Nature does the work instead of me. ☺

@wakeupkitty So you have winter in August? That would be odd to me. Good luck with the tomatoes.

No, we have summer now. In September autumn starts. Usually the tomatoes should be there already. πŸ’•

Hope that you will get some tomatoes. I wished I could share mine with you. We have so many right now.

That would have been great. Some years before I had many too. It was tomato juice, soup, salad ketchup etc. Also put them in pots (smaller ones) with garlic, pepper and some herbs. πŸ˜πŸ’•
