Finaly the red currants made their way into our home. We have many bushes arround the premises but two of them are really big. It took a lot of time to pick one entire bush. And what do we make out of them? That's coming next!
We bought four small tomato plants from the local grower in June, as Lumia got some vouchers for that shop for her birthday.
Finally my pumpkin plants have started to bloom and make fruit! The cucumbers are also blooming, but not growing cucumbers yet. Thank goodness for the few hot sunny days we had this week!
Lumia planted a lot of Zucchinis. It is sayed that one plant can supply a 4 head family. We got 7 plants. So we get about 1,5 kg of zucchinis every other day. I ususally cut them of the plant when they are somewhere between 10 to 20 cm, but not above 20 cm. So the still have a good taste.
Summer in Finland also means blueberry time. We went to one of the forests in our near (about 1km away) and found a place with lots of blueberries on the plants. I got bit by mosquitoes even when I had mosquito repellant on. Those bloody bastards are really tedious.
Yesterday I said I should start thinning out the carrots, so today I did. I thinned out quite a lot and luckily the largest part of the carrots were big enough to take back to the house, prepare and EAT! See my harvest in the header picture.
In June we got some new sea buckthorn plants and around one of them we decided to create a small mandala garden.

Fall 2017 has been somewhat crazy. Perhaps there'll be a little retrospect on it later, but for now let's look at some of the delicious veggies we were able to harvest this autumn from our annuals garden.
