Edamame soybeans, cucumbers ๐Ÿฅ’ ,tomatoes ๐Ÿ…, and eggplants ๐Ÿ†ย 

As minimum temperatures reached 10 degrees Celsius, today I decided to transplant my tomatoes, Japanese cucumbers, and eggplants which have been growing indoor since March 1st. 

I also planted one of my favourites: edamame soybeans! They are the perfect healthy snack and they can be kept frozen for years ๐Ÿ‘. Harvest time is sometimes in mid-end September, before they turn yellowish.

Despite the recent cold weather and snow, strawberries ๐Ÿ“ are in good shape and there is plenty of flowers which should turn into fruits quite soon.

Hopefully we will have a hot summer ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ! 

First harvest


Despite having planted our Japanese cucumbers (ใใ‚…ใ†ใ‚Š) in mid-June, today we were able to pick the first two ๐Ÿ‘. Also our cherry tomatoes and medium size tomatoes started delivering some nice and healthy ones ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…! 

Pumpkins are still in a miniature stage, so I really hope that summer continues for a few more weeks. This week will be a sunny one with highs of 30 Celsius โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€.

Rain Rain Rain


Yesterday I could finally go and do some work at the allotment. It’s been raining non-stop for 4 weeks and the minimum temperature did no go above 11-12 degrees Celsius… So almost everything we planted back in May did not survive. 

Tomatoes somehow managed to grow a bit, but they are still behind compared to a ‘normal’ season. 

I had to start from scratch with edamame and built a little shelter as in the next days the weather will be bad…

On a positive note, the grapevine that I planted last year is looking great and next Thursday summer eventually will start! (temperatures should reach 30 degrees Celsius)
