The season is already over for a month, but I want to give you a round-up of our first year with a vegetable patch. Mostly in pictures.
We had a lot of fun gardening, but it was also very satisfying to create something, to hold the harvest in our hands. We also stored some vegetables in our cellar, like potatoes, squashs, carrots, celeriac, beetroots and parsnips. The last four are stored in a clamp. We didn’t check on them, yet, so we don’t know if they’re still ok.
Unfortunately the rain destroyed almost all of our tomatoes. The normal rainfalls weren’t a problem, but 10 days steady rain were the quietus. Next time we’ll build a roof.
