20 October 2019

I took my camera with me to the garden. I knew i had to give out jobs and i wanted to seed the echinacea and the red onions. But i thought i would have time to photograph. I imagined spider’s webs and little insects and hopefully a rat if i could wait for them long enough. But no.

There was only ZoĆ«, a first time visitor to the garden. She had heard of the garden from Nitai. So i showed her the entire garden. We removed all the bean bamboo sticks. We seeded the echinacea and potted the red onions. We drank coffee. Than Nitai came by. We drank some more coffee. We talked about all different sort of things. We harvested the hot peppers and the little courgettes and the red tomatoes. We waited for Brian with the horse manure, but he didn’t turn up before a quarter past five. So we left the garden.

The weather was nice. Almost dry. A little bit of sunshine. Not too cold. Hardly any wind. Nice, for 20 October. I have enough peppers in my house to make some hot sauce. Good for tomorrow!

So no photographs. A nice afternoon. Very nice!

Planting and seeding

The little red onions are planted in this crate. We will set them out in spring 2020.
These onions i bought last Thursday at Vreeken. I will plant these in the Vredestuin Noord as well.
The lettuce i bought last Thursday. This one seems good for winter growth and harvest. Fingers crossed.
Two to three tiny little seeds in a pot
The lettuce we seeded a month ago

Oogstfeest 2019

Three cakes i baked, one vegan, one keto, one ‘normal’. Two vegan type cookies. The weather forecast wasn’t that good, but we went ahead anyway. Rain, sometimes hard wind. But in the end it wasn’t that bad. The music was fun. I missed half the talks, but it was fine. The cakes were fine too. And the movie made by Dennis and Marjolein was great! I loved it. Wonderful.

Amd now i’m tired. Really tired. So, good night!
