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.

Powerfood

The Brassica - true Powerfood. They are beautiful and so good for you. .


Brassica vegetables are highly regarded for their nutritional value. We should probably eat some Brassica each day. This is a huge vegetable family and they really do come in different shapes, structures and sizes. They provide high amounts of vitamin C and soluble fiber and contain multiple nutrients with potent anti-cancer properties. Broccoli is a true power food..



Kålgrönsaker är högt uppskattad för sitt näringsvärde. Vi borde troligtvis äta Brassicas varje dag. Detta är en stor vegetabilisk familj och de kommer verkligen i en mängd olika former, strukturer och storlekar. De ger stora mängder av vitamin C och löslig fiber och innehåller flera näringsämnen med potenta anti-cancer egenskaper. Broccoli är en verklig power food.

These are my small seedlings from this spring, cute aren't they.


This week a harvest some seeds from last years Red russian. I saved a plant from last year and that plant bloomed with pretty small yellow flowers this summers and now it gave my new seeds....thank you.

Mmm, det är gott...och nyttigt! Kål är vanligt att äta här i Brasilien. Till nationalrätten Feijoada, böngryta med kött och korv, äter man snabbfrästa kålblad av en sort som jag aldrig sett tidigare. Stora, gröna och platta. Dessutom skivad apelsin till. Nyttigt och gott!
Tack för kommentaren hos mig, det gjorde att jag hittade hit. Får nog se mig omkring en stund bland alla dina bloggar...

There is a limit to the amount of broccoli I can eat. I grew broccoli this year in my veggie garden but after several harvests I'd had enough. ;-)

What a delightful blog. I really couldn't tell what I loved more, the great posts or the fantastic photography. Looking forward to exploring more of your very own peace of heaven. Respect!

Thank you girls for all the lovely comments.
Violet 'Respect' fjohoo thank you!
Ninni nationalrätten Feijoada låter mycket spännande, kanske får bli det till helgen.
Kram Tyra

Hannele said...

(fast maken är lycklig över att ha fått läkarintyg på att inte få äta broccoli :)

Inte nog med att det är nyttigt - det är vackert också! Jag älskar verkligen broccoli men kål äter jag tyvärr inte lika ofta.

Ha en bra helg! Kram Karin

I'm a true believer, Tyra! A wonderful post for all your fans to consider. (Oh, how some day I would love to visit you and your garden!)

Hannele stackarn'
Karin det som finns så många härliga recept på kål, en av mina favoriter är hemmagjord Coleslaw med massa härliga frön i, naturligtvis frön till en frötoka.
Joey I would love that! You are more than welcome.

Your cabbages look gorgeous and healthy. That is just the very vegetable I do not manage to grow in my garden because it is immediately eaten by caterpillars. What is your secret?
