Harvest.

Som enhver tidligere vår hadde jeg store forhåpninger om en god kjøkkenhagesesong i år. Men det viste seg at det ble en kjølig og regnfull sommer. 
Været til tross har vel resultatene vært omtrent som de bruker, med noen grønnsaker som grodde og vokste fint, noen som ikke ville gro, noen frø som ikke ville spire, pluss de vanlige insekstsangrepene...  

Vi har høstet såpass godt med løk, squash, sukkererter og gulrøtter at vi har vært selvforsynte i deler av sommeren, og det er jeg glad for :)
Tomatene har gjort det mye bedre i år enn i fjor, og vi har hatt nok til pasta-, pizza og middagssauser og som tilbehør.

Nå har vi hatt så kjølige temperaturer en stund, og flere frostnetter, så jeg har tatt opp grønnsakene  fra kjøkkenhagen og plukket resten av tomatene i drivhuset.
Bare purre og chili er igjen ute nå, og det skal jeg høste en av de nærmeste dagene.


Like every previous spring I was hoping for a great kitchen garden season this year. But it turned out the summer was chilly and rainy.
Despite the weather the results were pretty much the same as previous summers, with some vegetables growing nicely, some hardly growing at all, some seeds not sprouting, and also the usual pest damages.

We have had a nice harvest of onions, squash, sugar peas and carrots, and have been self sufficiant in vegetables through parts of the summer, which I am very pleased with :)
The tomatoes have done much better than last year, and we have had enough for pasta-, pizza- and dinner sauces and for salads.

Lately the temperatures have fallen, and we have had several frost nights, so I have harvested the vegetables from the kitchen garden and picked the remaining tomatoes in the greenhouse.
There are only leek and chilli peppers left outside, which I will harvest one of the next days.


Dette er tomatene plukket i drivhuset. De fleste er grønne, men forhåpentligvis vil de modnes inne.

The tomatoes picked in the greenhouse. Most are green, but hopefully they will ripen inside the house.



Løk var det ikke mange igjen av ute, men de jeg fant er lagt til tørk. Disse blir nok spist ganske kjapt.

There were not many onions left in the kitchen garden, but I have put to dry the few I found. I guess these will be eaten quickly.



Gulrøtter var det fortsatt en del av ute. Mange var av fin størrelse, men det var mange små også. Jeg skal forvelle og fryse en del av dem, resten lagres.

Rødbetene har jeg ikke høstet av i det hele tatt i år, så der var det å høste alle. Det var et par stykker som var ganske store, resten var av middels størrelse. Jeg er fornøyd med avlingen og rødbeter var lette å dyrke i kjøkkenhagen. 
Etter å ha fjernet bladene og skyllet rødbetene veide jeg dem, og fant ut at resultatet var 2,4 kilo med rødbeter. Det syntes jeg var bra :)

I dag har jeg syltet egendyrkede, økologiske rødbeter for første gang.


There were quite a few carrots left. Many of good size, but also many small ones. I will blanche and freeze part of the carrots, and store the rest in the fridge.

I have not harvested a single beet root this summer, so they were all harvested now. There were a couple that were quite large, while the rest were of medium size. I am happy with the harvest, and learned that beet root is easy to grow in the kitchen garden.
After removing the leaves and washed the beet roots I weighed them, and found out that the result was 2,4 kg of beet roots. I think that's good :)

Today I made pickled beet root from my own home grown organic beet roots for the first time.



Av de 2,4 kiloene med ble det ble seks 0,5 litersglass med syltede rødbeter.
Jeg har ikke smakt, så jeg er spent på resultatet. Hvis de blir gode skal jeg poste oppskriften.


2,4 kg of beet root filled six jars of 0,5 liter.
We have not tasted them, so I am curiuos about how they turned out. If they are good I'll post the recipe.

Fantastisk å være selvforsynt så store deler av sommeren.
Nydelige bilder, som viser at avlingen er høstet med flid og omsorg.
Ha en hyggelig Søndag!
