Belated but beloved foods (and harvest!)

It’s amazing how sometimes I draft a blog post and then completely forget about it! Later I find it and get surprised by how nice it is. This juicy food-picture line-up here even dates back to last February! It includes dishes that were consumed with Christmas ’17, can you believe it?! Crazy stuff. This is now even my first food-related post of the year. Except for veggies growing on plants and freshly harvested, which I treat as nature-related posts. 🙂 Things are changing! (Have I completed my mission of spreading vegan food inspiration? Is that it?) As I’ve witnessed in my garden, this year’s delivery of pumpkins and bell peppers is coming in so I can happily post this now and tell myself I am a conscious blogger. Speaking of my garden: I’ll add a picture of our latest harvest! And as you can see from that one, my priorities also slightly shifted away from taking good-quality pictures with my actual camera. Also, my Photohop moved to a farm. So pictures can be blurry and …

Mulching on a Dream: garden harvest mid-June

In the midst of my interning episode, I make a point of contributing to the garden and of enjoying how lovely and peaceful it all it. Back in May, I did get stung by bees twice in two weeks, which is ridiculous and not at all peaceful. I had bad luck being close to aggressive bee hives two times. I found the experience of being attacked like that pretty horrifying! As was the resulting swollen upper lip. Ouch. It took me some time and unnecessary panicking before I could trust bees again, but I think I managed! Now I’m just showing off this beautiful bunch of plant materials. The flowers on top are being dried. The rhubarb went down as a pie. The kohlrabi – yes, the purple two! – are not supposed to crack in the middle. Today the Courgette Counter proudly reads 19. 🙂 No non-garden updates today. Enjoy the picture and as much as you can!

Beans and berries from the garden

In the pictures: beautiful beans from our garden; the use of an egg holder for tea eggs; large sunbathing pumpkins; blackberries from the garden; oatmeal with self-made blackberry jam and blueberries. ☀ The pumpkins are from the garden too – we’re so happy and proud! Some were probably harvested too early, hence the sunbathing. ☀ Jam is made using agar agar for the consistency and it worked fine. Oatmeal has banana, flax seeds, chia seeds  and raisins inside. ☀ Have a good day! PS Several new pictures are added to the Food Gallery too! Let me know if you still miss a particular something there.

Mulching on a Dream: harvest July ’17

For some time I’ve been meaning to show you our garden, but it’s rather messy (permaculture-ish) which makes that it takes some effort and skills to take good pictures. So I did not do that yet. Today, however, we had such a great-looking harvest that I wanted to show you! The garden is managed by three people and we started this year only. It’s an allotment garden in the city where we live. The garden is a really lively place with all the plants and (mainly) insects. This was today: The pumpkins should grow orange, but since the plants are producing so many big ones already and we’re going on holidays next week (we’ll disappear on The Day Out Of Time!), we figured we may better already take some, so the plant can use its energy to further develop smaller ones. The yellow UFO-like veggies are the newest addition to my long long inner ‘favourite veggies’ list: they’re called patisson. The plant is of the same species as your ‘regular’ pumpkins and courgettes: the species …
