The rockii is in full bloom.

Wild bees find and check out the newly installed bee hotel.

The painting is finished and it’s warm enough to start potting the tomatoes.

Home again after a good vacation. The garden is in very good shape.

There were a lot of green tomatoes to pick last fall and save to ripen during the fall/winter. We’ve been eating them until now, and these are the last.

These various kinds of small cocktail tomatoes last the longest. The flavor is not that great, but turned into a cresmy tomato soup, the flavor is excellent.

I got all the tomatoes and peppers in.

The weather is unseasonably hot and dry. We have a good supply of water, but it takes a lot of time watering.

Big pots, old manure, dirt and tomato plants. I buy tomato plants at garden markets, because I don’t have proper lighting and temperature conditions earlier in the year. And that way I get a greater variety of tomato types.

It is still early, and I must be ready to get out some evenings and cover them on cold nights.

After all the guests snd garden parties, we are off on a garden viewing trip. First stop is Järna – a nice little home-made greenhouse full of tomatoes and peppers. 

More rain and warmer nights. It’s a hectic time now to get everything planted out. 



Tomatoes and peppers potted


The earlier stuff is looking good too. 

The tomatoes picked at the end of fall last year have riped in the food cellar and have lasted well until now. It’s time to make the last ones into a salsa. 


It’s a mix of mostly tomatoes with sweet peppers, chili peppers, onions and garlic along with a good portion of oregano, basil, sage, rosemary and thyme simmered with soy sauce for a couple of hours. 


Then ground to a pulp. 


It’s either used now for homemade pizza, lasagne and such or stored in the freezer for later use. 


In one portion I added lingon berries and miso after cooling for a new flavor sensation. 

 

The tomatoes are in their pots, but I have a little more space to fill, so I think I’ll buy 7 more and a couple more peppers or chilis.
