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

I'm Back!

Land ahoy!

At anchor in a peacefull bay Navigare necesse est!

After several weeks at sea I'm now back, back to ordinary everyday life, back to work and back to my garden and greenhouse. Oh boy what a mess in my garden, what on earth happened while I was gone or perhaps more correctly put what didn’t happened? Some of the weeds are taller then I am, now that perhaps isn’t too hard :-). In some places I wonder what do I grow here...hm? Well give me I few days, by then I will have filled the compost bin to the brim with weeds and over-grown vegetables and then we are back on the track again. Perhaps I can sow some lovely Asian greens now…

Among the up-to-the-elbow-tall weeds my friend John Davis is looking good and a lot of other roses as well. Pure joy!


In the greenhouse I’m now able to harvest all my lovely tomatoes. All the heirlooms I ordered from U.S. are now mature and they are so lovely, beautiful and delicious. Cherokee purple is still the favourite. Much more about the tomatoes in The Greenhouse blog.



Nice to be back in front of the computer as well!

Tyra - you continue to surprise me! I didn't reasize that you also had a "sailing" blog. Beautiful. I used to sail a bit in Danish waters many years ago.
My heirloom tomatoes are looking great and growing well, but I think that the taste of most of them is somewhat "blah" because of lack of sun.

Several weeks at sea -- that sounds like heaven!!

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Sweet bay/Salix - It is heavenly to sail but it is so hard to be away from the garden or gardening. Each time I get out on the see I pack loads of stuff from the garden and that is great, herbs, veggies and flowers, they all remind my of my 'heaven' on land.I'm glad you found my sailing blog and ever more glad you liked it.
About the 'blah'taste, spice them up. That is the good thing with tomatoes, they are so versatile.

xoxo Tyra

Välkommen hem! Jag misstänkte nog att du var på semester eller iallafall bortrest. Men nu är ordningen återställd hoppas jag - och då menar jag inte i trädgården, utan med bloggandet!! Och vad trädgården anbelangar så går det fortare än man först tror att återställa ordningen. Good luck!
/Ruben - your favourite blogger

Anja said...

....and I,m glad to have you back....som vi säger på finska ;))!
Din segelbåtsbild är ju ba' så läcker!
Tomatfest är det även hos mig! Tomatåret har varit bra hos mig trots mycket regn och eländes elände på "torran" land (inte en torr fläck dock;))!)/Anja

Tyra i Vaxholm said...

Ruben, tack och ja jag vet att snart är 'ordning' i min vilda trädgård :-)Det känns bara tungt just nu, det är mycket som torkat bort! Det regnar ju inte så mycket på min del skärgården men på andra sidan bron (typ) där får de alltid mer.


Anja jag tror det rent allmänt har varit eller är ett bra frukt år. Jag har nästan varit i Finland, halvvägs i alla fall, vi seglade över till Åland. Kanske lite väl mycket hav för min smak :-)

Trevligt att ha dig tillbaka! Får vi se några bilder från sjön?
Kram EL

Tyra i Vaxholm said...

Eva Linnea, kul att vara tillbaka , faktiskt riktigt skönt att vara tillbaka vanliga de gamla vanliga rutinerna.

Bilder och inlägg om havet hittar du i min blogg Navigare necesse est!

Mimi said...

Aj Åland, då var ni ju redan nära mina hemtrakter. Ni skulle ha kommit ända över till Åbolands skärgård. Se på trädgårdsbloggen inlägget Ängesö, mitt paradis på jorden ifrån början av augusti.

Hej Tyra, håller på att "random-surfar" på bloggarna och hamnade här vi Rubens blogg.

Måste surfa runt lite på din blogg och kolla, här händer det massor känns det som.

Karin A said...

Ja åter till vardagen - det ser ut på ungefär samma sätt här. Mycket ogräs i rabatterna och härliga tomater i växthuset! :) Härliga bilder!

Kram Karin

Karen said...

Hi Tyra - Welcome back to your beautiful garden (I know those weeds won't last long with you around) and blogland. Your tomatoes are amazing, so colorful, every hue possible. At least no weeds to pull in the greenhouse, right? :)

Hannele said...

Vilka fina tomater, fortfarande har vi ganska varma fina kvällar, kram.
