Fall and Winter harvest from our garden

In the Fall of 2014 we had plenty of raspberries and bramberries.
It’s the first year our (still rather small) fig tree produced a dozen or 2 figs!

And we had buckets and buckets of walnuts from our walnut tree. I keep them in a dry place, and about 2-3 months after harvesting, I start peeling them and keep them in glass jars. Easy to have some walnuts at hand for baking, or just whenever you feel like eating some.

One of our poplar trees is producing oyster mushrooms. It’s very nice to have free oyster mushrooms from the garden, but unfortunately this also means the tree is slowly dying.

    Prachtige foto’s! Opmerkelijk dat zo’n relatieve korte afstand zo’n verschil maakt in wat je kunt telen; hier op Texel zullen vijgen nooit tot wasdom komen of rijpen en bloemkool is hier ook erg lastig. Aan de andere kant kunnen wij misschien wel makkelijker zeekraal kunnen telen. Leuk dat we ons gevonden hebben.

      Mmm. zeekraal. dat zou hier niet lukken denk ik! De vijgen zijn ook een beetje twijfelgeval hier. Bij strenge vorst probeer ik het boompje ook af te schermen. Ik hoop dat hij de winter overleeft!

        Op Texel wel geprobeerd wijndruiven te telen maar op een fiasco uitgelopen. Toch heeft mijn moeder heel mooie druivenranken in haar tuin en zelfs een amandelboom die elk jaar noten geeft. Maar zij heeft een extreem beschutte tuin, dat scheelt!

  5. Looks delicious! Great veggies!
