Today we finally had our first homegrown meat. One of the chicken became a rooster. He didn’t get along with the old one so he had to go.
Now we finally had the opportunity to make him for dinner. Tasted really good. All the vegetables were also homegrown, just some seasoning wasn’t from our place and the wine of course. We could have had our cherry wine but wanted some Pinot Noir.
The end of 2019 is near. It was a good year. Susanna started working again and I have been on parental leave. The children are growing. One is in school and two at home. We are keeping busy with all kinds of stuff.
The garden has given us plenty of vegetables. And will continue to give us more in the next months, we still have plenty of potatoes and onions. Today we harvested for the last time this year. Carrots, red cabbage and regular cabbage. Now only thyme, parsley and kale are left for later harvest.
I just have to tell you about our garden. We had a bit more time to put into it because I was at home with the kids. So we got it looking really good.
Now we are earning the reward for the hard work. Today we gathered all this food in our garden. (Sure the work effort to get plums isn’t that much, basically just gathering them before they all fall to the ground).
Today we collected squash, plums, blackberries, beetroots, two kinds of onions, potatoes, parsley, dill and carrots. It’s such a joy to have all these good things to gather in the garden.
How can dinner be anything other than good?
Sorry I started eating before I took the picture, it was just so good. Almost everything came from our garden, just the meet and the small stuff you can’t see isn’t home grown.
