Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

Squash and Pumpkin Parade

CLICK TO ENLARGE!
Cucurbita maxima Duchesne 'Blue Hubbard' and 'Marina di Chioggia' are the green ones at the bottom. The yellow/orange one I think really looks like a how pumpkin should look like, it's a Pumpkin Racer F1. The rest are just small one's that I grow purely for decorations.

Blue Hubbard has got this wonderful bright orange flesh, good for cooking.

Nice pics!!!
Åhhhh Renee's pumpa risotto som hon tillagade, med mycket parmesan i. Jag har testat mig på den men misslyckats kapital. Tror jag använde fel sorts pumpa.

Oj vad länge sen det var jag gjort risotto. Det är verkligen dags!

Finfina pumpor! De är så roliga att så, växer så det knakar och skörden blir inte alltid vad man tänkt sig =) Jag plockade in de sista i söndag - små, små minipumpor, inte större än en tomat men söta är de! Ha det gott 8`)
