I’ve shown you my garden a few times (like here and here). But autumn has come to Denmark, which means there’s not much for me to do in my wee garden, but enjoy what’s left of flowers and colours. Mentally I haven’t been ready to give up my garden, and all the gorgeous vege that I got from it (a lot of it withered in the sun and rain when we were on vacation), so I decided to plant some lettuce and some swiss chards (or silver beets, bright lights or whatever you may want to call them) in my windowsill. I’m especially excited about the chards, since it’s the first time I’ve sown them – but my mum has them at home in the window boxes and they’re both beautiful and so delicious. Plus, it’s so nice having something growing and something to look forward to when the autumn brings rain and wind.
Ps. If you wonder what I mean with victory garden, I can explain; this was what you call the gardens people planted during WWII in their yards, windows.. All to start producing their own food.
