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

Potager in Africa

If you’re interested in growing your own veggies look at these absolutely wonderful pictures from Louis. The picture are taken in Koudougou and that is in Burkina Faso. I just love these pictures with beautiful people and there Potager, there enthusiasm really shows. I wish I could be there and share the joy. Meet Marie Thérèse, Marie Riene, Innocent, Yannick, Ousmane and Sylvain and there work in the garden in Koudougou.




Look at this magnificant Potager. Un jardin exemplaire!

This is the potager of Marie Thérèse and Innocent. It doesn't look very green just now but the fence looks great. Le potager de Marie Thérèse et d'Innocent

Time to plant the small seedlings in shallow holes.

Houses in Koudougou and I think it is maize growing there.
Proud gardeners

The nursery, la pépinière reçoit toute l'attention qu'elle a besoin.

Le potager...une histoire de famille: la mère d'Innocent et de Marie Reine donne un coup de main!
Marie Riene is looking after the small seedlings.

Thank you Louis!

Have a wonderful day, TYRA

What a fabulous post!
The colours are so vibrant and warm I can almost feel that sunshine on my back as I sit here in cold, frosty France.
Yes, they're maize plants. The local farmers grow them here for cattle food when the whole plant is chopped up and fed to the cows. I tried to eat a cob once, it was as tough as ten-year old boots and stuck in my teeth!

How wonderful to see a potager in Africa. It's both very much like mine and very different. :-)
