This was my first little paprika, see how big it became (and do ignore the weeds in the background, I promise you, I shall do the same).
Snails didn't find my precious pumpkins, and now they are getting big and strong, laying on an old roof tile to keep them off of the wet ground.
For those who are also in love with these beautiful fragile flowers, enjoy!
In English they have already a sweet name: lady is part of it. But in Dutch they are called 'lieveheersbeestje' which translates to love-conquer-bug. So if you ever out of love, find this little one, and all be good one day once more. His/her name promises so.
Never knew our climate would be good enough for pure hotness. Don't worry about the white spots, no mould of any kind, just sand sprayed up after the rain.
I never knew that beets were so tasty, until I ate them from my own ground. It is funny that you feel a bit inapt when you pull one out of the ground and don't know how to prepare them. Because I always had them canned and thus cleaned, I wondered if I should get off the skin. And how long to boil them... But the best way you eat them is chopped in a salad, with pears, feta cheese, pepper and salt, lovely!
Hi, I'm Bregtje. Here you can find me with my head up side down in the garden. But I also can be found with my head in a newly home made cupboard or above the kitchen stove or even between piles of paper, sticking stuff in arty albums and brushing away with paint! And now I'm developing a new hobby to add to my ever growing project list: blogging about it all! Please find my Garden blog, Kitchen blog, Homemaking blog and Arts blog here!
