New home for New Dawn, Saving Rhubarbs & making Ramson Pesto

Yet another great day before the cold weather are back!

The pallet collar that I oiled yesterday are dry and put in place around the Garlic Rossi di Sulmona from Gourmet Garage

Continued the preparations for the Rose and Peony flower bed, digging deeper holes for where the larger plants will be placed later.
 Filled the holes with soil
 Covered the ground with barksheets that let the water through, made a opening for the deeper parts
 I covered the wood with plastic & The Climbing Rose New Dawn is the first down.
 Filled with more soil
 I trimmed the plastic and voila, New Dawn in the New Home

On the other side of the road/stream are the old areas for vegetable gardens, with two of my Black Currant bushes. Between them and I are a area where I struck gold ;)
 Rhubarb Buds was sticking up through the weed here and there :D
 After hours of work, taking away loads of weed like the horrible "Ground Elder/Kirskål" a nice bed for the Rhubarb!
I know there will be much more work weeding in the future, but after checking this season how the Rhubarb grows I will cover all areas around with Bark sheets to make it easier next year.

My friends Susanne & Evy here in the village made me aware that the 1st Ramson/Ramslök in the English Park is ready for harvest.
I went there at once, and ohh, they where everywhere :D
 I picked large leaves and filled a bag, and took the bicycle home with the gold.
My own recepie is with Ramson, Almond, Chili & Olive oil!
 The day brought the Best in the end: Ramson Pesto, Yum :9

Hope Your Friday is as good :D
Per!

    1. Tack Evy, tack för besöket idag.
      Ja mycket jobb med Rabarbern blev det, och mer i framtiden antar jag ;)
      Mandeln kom från ett LCHF recept, och sedan la jag till Chili som jag älskar, blev jättegott :D
      Kram, Per!

    Ah, vad snyggt du gjort och vilken härlig avslutning med peston. Ramslök har jag aldrig sett i skogarna här i Göteborg.

    1. Tack Katarina :D
      Vi har tur som har en Engelsk park här vid Herrgården där Ramslöken täcker hela marken, och den kommer precis upp så det blir mycket god gratismat i framtiden, och för att inte tala om prakten när allt blommar :D
      Titta i lövskogar, de ser ut som Liljekonvaljer när de börjar att sticka upp, och lukten av lök känns tydligt när du tar på dem, Lycka till, Per!
