In April the land we're actually cultivating was just a pile of fruitless brambles even higher than 2mt. We spent almost 2 months trying to eradicate them and we managed to clean enough space to plant 50 tomatoes, 20 chili peppers, 6 zucchinis and 5 melons.
We don't even have running water, we have to bring there once a week 200l in barrels.
And finally here we are: 50kg of tomatoes. No fertiliser, no pesticides whatsoever.


SzΓ©kely Stuffed Cabbage for dinner. My favorite version which uses fermented cabbage leaves stuffed with ground meat cooked with a variety of smoked meat and smoked sausage. Commonly eaten with a dollop of sour cream and brick fired sour dough bread.

Hope every one is having a good weekend. Buco (young coconut) Pie with Ube. Thank you Pinoy Store for bringing the Philippines to Prague, CZ.

As my first post here, here's a pic of my latest sourdough!

New Year’s Day meal: Steak-Frites! With pepper sauce. Used flank instead due to cost but the result was superb! Reverse engineered what they serve at le relais de l’EntrecΓ΄te in Paris from memory (corn on cob was something I added). Happy New Year’s everyone!

introduction, food plants 

Hello! I'm Kirsty from Scotland, I grow plants and have been experimenting with growing food in a tenement flat since I don't have a garden. In this hell year of 2020 I've been growing tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, beans, strawberries and tomatillos with some success!

Favorite autumnal delicacy... Apple Pie! 250g of full fat butter to 2 cups of flour worked out nicely. In the absent of tallow, butter always rises to the occasion.
