Tuesday is harvest day

 Lately, I've converted my Tuesday morning into a harvest morning. I don't know why but Tuesday is a day when I usually harvest my veggies. Mondays are just too busy, I usually dig both the main and side garden, clean thoroughly the house, cook, and do a couple of loads of washing, and harvest is just something I don't have time for. Tuesday is a slower day, and I get the chance to walk around the garden and harvest. This Tuesday wasn't an exception.

Weird pumpkin identified

 A few weeks ago, I've noticed a pumpkin-like plant growing next to my rhubarb. I haven't sown any of my zucchinis or pumpkins here, so I had no idea which plant it was. When it first started growing I thought it could be watermelon, but as the leaves were getting bigger I was certain that it was some kind of pumpkin.  The vine continued growing like mad, so I guessed it could be pumpkin, but the problem is that I haven't sown any pumpkins in a very long time.

"Less messy avjar" or ajvar from the oven

Last year I made ajvar for the first time in my own kitchen and completely alone. Of course, that meant that I also had to clean the ajvar mess alone and that's the experience I don't want to do again. The boiling ajvar was squirting everywhere, messing up half of the kitchen, including the ceiling. I really wasn't in the mood to clean everything again, not after all the pickling and cleaning I did this year, so I've decided to make the ajvar in the oven this year. I made the small amount of the baked ajvar last year as the testing batch and it turned out my hubby preferred the baked ajvar over the cooked one. The baked ajvar is a bit darker and thicker than the cooked one, but the general taste is the same. Oven-baked ajvar 2021 Pot cooked ajvar 2020 The ingredients for the oven-baked ajvar were completely the same as the "normal" ajvar: Read more here As of June 2022, Rolling down my garden will be moving to its own side:  https://rollingdownmygarden.com Ful

When Covid does something good- vegetable deliveries

 This past year has changed lots of things in our lives. Some people are affected more and others less, but we all feel the change. I can honestly say that in my life Covid brought lots of good things. Although I'm still a bit struggling with a cough and the masks are something really annoying, there are some changes that actually helped the lives of people that live in places farther away from towns. Covid made our people think and work differently and gave us a chance to live like many other countries have lived for ages.  Before Covid there was only one big supermarket chain that delivered food and vegetables, there were only a couple of clothes and shoe stores online, and specialized stores like hardware, gardening, plant, bookstores couldn't be found online. Now one year later we can buy anything online. I have no reason to go into town because I can buy everything online and it will be delivered to our door which is excellent because our public transport is very poor and
