Taking care of the harvest

It has been a great summer for my lemontree this year. I planted it in a huge pot and it growed wildly. I haven't seen any budding lemons though even if we got lots of flowers. Maybe it put all energy to grow branches and leaves. 
Anyway the branches became to long so I cut a few off and put them in pots to see if there will be any new lemontrees. Wouldn't those become a great christmas gift or birthday present?
 The leaves in front of the pots will be stored in the freezer. Yes these will be excellent for adding a hint of lime in a stew. You know you can buy those dried lime leafs in asian food stores? These are the same but when you put them fresh in the freezer you save all the essential oils for the stew. I get some clever ideas sometimes ;-)

Another clever idea when you get too many zucchinis. Chop them up and put them in the freezer. I chop them in slices and cubes. The slices are a great topping on a home made pizza.
I don't buy much canned or frozen vegetables during the winter season when I grow and store the excess my own.

  1. I can't wait to own my own home and be able to do this. So much better than frozen and canned veggies! I may just start a mini garden out of pots next spring

  2. Oh your homegrown herbs and veggies will be so much better than frozen ones over the long winter! Looks so yummy!

  3. RE: Jeg vet! De er superhotte!
