Here I am, with a big lemon ginger tea and a cold. It looks like we have the last warm day over here and I want to go on a long bike ride, but maybe I need to exchange that for a book and a chair in the garden. :)
I’m so sorry these kind of blog posts are always not in time, but maybe I have to accept that they will come now and then whenever I feel like I have something interesting to share and the time to sit down. So here we are now and I hope you all arrived well into the new season. I will split this post in three parts so you don’t get overwhelmed by the amount of words and pictures. :) Get yourself some hot fresh ginger tea and some cake!
I will start from the beginning. It was the middle of August and our little Willow had a virus. After several visits at the vet and antibiotics he was on it’s way to get better. But then while he was outside in the carden a stranger cat attacked him and hurt his leg so much that he could not walk anymore. He is now back to normal, but these weeks were so challenging for us. :(
As I write this we have probably harvested more than 100 zucchini from one single plant! We got creative using it in every possible dish. Here I tried out zucchini chocolate cake and oh it was delicious! I shared the recipe in my Instagram highlights if you are interested. :)
potatoes were harvested too! :) Or should I say little potato humans?

And then August was getting colder and one morning I woke up to this incredible beautiful early fog. It was the first morning that felt like autumn is on it’s way.
Bread has been baked as well! After two years of baking sourdough quite regularly I feel like last week I managed to bake the best bread so far. Finally I can feel if the dough is perfect and I know what to do to receive better results. :)

Finishing this post with a garden update or should I say a harvest update? :) It was such a joy to harvest what has been in the soil for so long and to already think about what the next garden year could look like.
See you on Wednesday for the September update. Many ginger hugs! :)
