Seeds and Greens With The Vegan Swedes

A while ago I posted "Growing Seeds With The Vegan Swedes" and here is my update. The seeds have grown into nice strong, green plants with small fruits and flowers. Not ready for picking yet, but well on their way.

Unfortunatly our broccoli didn't make it. But looking at the garden beds now, I don't really know where they would have fit. Guess I will have to buy broccoli from the shops this summer too. 

Our black and red tomatoes have grown into big and robust plants with lots of flowers, soon to turn into ripe tasty tomatoes. Even the green vines just smell so good, like sunny summer.

The leeks are still on their first stage and won't be ready until late autumn, so they look like grass but taste like spicy onion springs.

Potatoes and red onions are growing with lots of power and will hopefully be ready with in the coming few weeks. (Below: Potatoes, 2 Varieties)

Zucchini / Summer Squash

Pineapple-Sage, Rosemary & Thyme

Greenhouse Cucumber

Eggplant / Aubergine


Last but not least, the garden greens mentioned in the title. I love flowers, berries, rhubarbs, apples and all things growing. So here are just a few photos from our backyard.

  1. So many wonderful plants! They must have great soil, sun, etc. over there... and of course great care!

  2. Thank you VegSpinz! We do have the fortune of night+day daylight here in the summer, so that helps. Our soil is a great mix, usually containing lots of bugs and worms, so naturally very healthy. All this helps alot with making the care easier.

    Thanks again so much for reading the blog and commenting :)
