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

Report from My Veranda is Under Siege

Report from My Veranda is Under Siege


My Veranda is under siege since exactly a month ago. On Valentine’s Day I started to sow my seeds, all the chilies, aubergines, artichokes and so on. the family will get it back on the first day of May :-) 

Today one month later I planted all the tomato seeds, 55 varieties…I know that it is too many but I had such a hard time to choose.

Today was also the first day of harvest, I was thinning out the seedling and that gave me a modest but still a nice little harvest of micro leaves. Lettuce, chicory, amaranth, parsley, cress and so on, they all ended up on my lunch plate. 









Happy Gardening Folks!/ Tyra

WOW!! 55 varieties seems to be a large number. Mind if you share some images with us regarding your harvest as well as the plant itself, how they are growing.

Tack Tyra, du får mig att inte känna mig ensam i min tomatnördighet ;-) Min dotter bara suckade och himlade med ögonen när jag räknade ihop till 67 sorter i år....men hur SKA man kunna välja bort gamla godingar när man får nya sorter !? Ha en fin helg
