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

Bring the Garden into Your Kitchen

This post Bring the Garden into Your Kitchen was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius-Lindhe in the blog Tyra's Garden 




Well the titel could easily be misunderstood it is a bit misleading. Now in January I haven’t got a lot to bring into the kitchen from my potager. Although I do have some lovely kale and leeks left that the dear deer hasn’t found yet.





 I just want to show you my new tea towels and pegs. I order these kitchen towels from SSE Seed Savers Exchange and they are from Paper Shark, Santa Barbara. 100% “flour-sack” cotton. I just love the prints, they put a smile on my face every time I use then. I think they will be perfect on the sailing boat as well because the dry so very quickly in the wind. Talking about wind...



The pegs are in an old fashioned style and I just love them too. Thank you Johan for this wonderful Christmas gift. I’m longing to start to dry my washing outdoors again. Nothing beats the “perfume” of fresh, clean washing dried by the wind.

Lena/isis. Nej då inte alls krångligt, jag beställer de flesta av årets fröer därifrån också. Hur bra som helst.

Those tea towels would make me smile if I could see them every day too Tyra. Great find. Your clothespins are a nice gift too. I live in a neighborhood where clothes lines are prohibited (can you believe it?) so no fresh, breeze dried laundry for me. I hope you get to hang yours out very soon tho.
