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.

October Harvest from my Potager - Tabbouli

This post October Harvest from my Potager - Tabbouli was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius-Lindhe in the blog Tyra's Garden

Late October and yet I can still harvest from my potager.

We have had some nights with frost and we have even had snowfall. So I’m rather amazed that I could harvest these things today. From todays harvest I’m going to make Tabbouli a herby Lebanese bulgur salad. For this dish I need a lot of parsley, 2 tomatoes, some mint and 2 small onions from my potager addition to that I need bulgur, lemon juice, olive oil salt and pepper. It would be nice to add a pomegranate too but unfortunately I have got that so I have to cope without it.

Aubergine, Rocoto pepper, parsley, Cherokee purple tomatoes, Poblano chili and Chervena Chushka pepper

To drink with my Tabboulli
 I’m going to have a cold Rose, apple and mint tea,
 an October Harvest Tea!

Apples, mint and Roses from the garden.

It is Harvest Monday at Daphne´s place do pop over to Daphne and meet the rest of the guys,

but first...

Don't be a stranger my friend
 Do write something, I would just love to hear from you./ Tyra

Vilka underbara höstbilder. Visst är det lyxigt att kunna gå ut i trädgården och hämta in skörden.
Bon Appétit!

i am amazed all you are still harvesting, lovely photos~

Emily said...

I'm impressed with your warm weather crops harvested even after frost and snow!

Enjoy your tabbouli!

Mary said...

I can't believe you still have tomatoes up in Sweden. Are they from your greenhouse?

I think a rose, apple, mint tea is a lovely idea.


TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Hi Mary, yes the chilis, peppers and tomatoes are from my greenhouse. I had an amazing 10 degrees Celsius there today :-)

What a colorful harvest!! The tea sounds awesome too.

Dave @ HappyAcres said...

Your Tabbouli sounds yummy! I need to make some while I still have tomatoes.

*Ulrike* said...

You are so fortunate to be able to harvest, and those apples look delicious!

JGH said...

Oh, now I am craving some tabouli!Some people make it with more wheat than parsley, but I like it with lots of parsley and less wheat. You have some pretty colors to add to it!

kitsapFG said...

The bulgur salad sounds absolutely delicious! You are a getting a great harvest considering your weather - good work!

I can't believe you are still getting things like peppers and tomatoes. They look wonderful.

joey said...

A family favorite, dear Tyra. You are blessed to still have all the goodies to prepare it.

Vackra bilder. Fantastiskt vad du fortfarande kan skörda! Här har grönsakerna varit slut länge bortsett från jordärtsskockorna, som 'lever sitt helt egna liv'.
Ha det gott

Veronika said...

Hej Tyra!

Vattnas liksom i munnen när du i så vackra ord och bild beskriver din tabbouli!

Finns så mycket gott man kan göra med både bulgur och couscous.Ibland brukar vi smaksätta grynen redan vid kokning med lite chili, ingefära och/eller lime.

Gott till grillat!
