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.

November Harvest - Glorious mix

This post November Harvest - Mulch, Funghi and Apples was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in the blog Tyra's Garden



Glorious mix


First day of November and I'm up in my summerhouse for a few days. Here we have had several frost nights and there is not much to harvest from my kitchen garden. The weather today was wonderful, hardly any wind and fairly warm for the season. The sun embraced me gently with its mild and low November rays. I had a few wonderful hours out in the forest today, harvested some funghi for tonight’s pasta and plenty of moss cushions of Common Sundew Sphagnum and some other mosses that I will use for decorations. Harvested plenty of apples to feed the birds with later during the long cold winter, well they got some now as well.



So, my Harvest Monday adds up to one basket full of a ‘glorious mix’ from the forest and a few buckets of apples for the birds.

...I forgot I harvested loads of leaves to mulch the kitchen garden with!






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

Those mushrooms look great! How will you use them?

TYRA said...

Hi Emily, I'm just going to stir- fry them with a nob of butter and then toss them into some pasta. Add grated parmesan cheese and coarse black pepper, simple and dead easy! Perhaps a glass of red :-)

Drooling over your mushrooms, Tyra, you lucky gal! Dinner sounds delightful. Happy November :)

Randi said...

Vilka underbara höstbilder...jag kan förnimma doften. Blir så avis på dina svampar - det saknar jag enormt här nere. Bra att du påminde om mossan...
Önskar dig en riktigt skön ny vecka!

You can just smell fall in a plate of fresh mushrooms! So earthy and beautiful. Lovely photos as always - thanks for sharing your garden and harvest with us.

Vilka fynd du gjorde i skogen. Trodde det var slut på kantarellsäsongen, men så var det tydligen icke! Skönt, att ha lite mossa på lut - om snön skulle komma oväntat (som den nyligen gjorde här).
Ha det gott!

Hej!
Vad njutbart det är att titta in här. Mmm svamp det får nog bli svampsoppa idag har torkat en hel del. Mossa måste jag nog också ut och plocka lite för snart är det dags för julpyssel.
Ha en bra dag
Annika

Daphne said...

I would so eat those apples myself. I have a fridge full of them right now from the farmers market. They are so tasty.

The apples do look delicious!
I've never seen them placed in a bird feeder like that before.

Lucky birds!
