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.

    Mal schauen, ob ich diesmal kommentieren darf (beim ersten Versuch scheiterte ich an der Sicherheitsabfrage, die wollte meine Antwort nicht). Seit Ihr bei “Meine Ernte”? Das überlegen wir für 2013 auch. Sieht toll aus bei Euch!

      Hm, blöd mit der Sicherheitsabfrage.

      Ja, wir waren bei Meine Ernte. Uns hat es super gefallen und können es nur empfehlen! Sollten wir nächstes Frühjahr immer noch hier wohnen, werden wir es wieder machen.
