Apple Flood?

My dear little Friends,

Do you have a garden? If yes, this year you might suffer from…apple flood. At a first glance, it may seem like a real blessing, your trees gave generous harvests. At a second glance, you can find yourself surrounded by apples that are falling and falling…you don’t know what to do with them and you may be scared even…

 

No worries, today I will show you a couple of tricks how to gather your apples and store them for winter. Nope, my Friends, suggestions aka hamster method (you know that they put everything at once into their mouth) are not acceptable. We are human beings, aren’t we? So, we need to be more practical and caring.

Nobody likes gathering apples that are spoiled already. It can mainly happen due to their fall from a high tree. They are simple broken. Thus, there is a special apple catcher that will not only help you gather apples in their best shape, but will reach the top of the world…em…excuse me, the top of your apple tree. Practical and simple! Every apple is saved!

A very long stick (you may use your old fishing rod) with plastic flower on the top, huh, do you like it?

Ukrainians crazy about apple jams that are opened during cold winter days. Sweet and tasty jams can remind you of warm and sunny summer days spent in your garden. Do not be lazy, gather apples, wash/cut them, add sugar, boil them a bit, and volla!

 

 

 

One of the most efficient and cheap methods to keep your apples tasty and healthy is to dry them. Let us prepare dried apples. You cannot imagine how delicious dried apples are, especially if you spent a lot of time for slicing them on your own. Extra taste! Genius, isn’t it?

In Ukraine we also make apple purees that are perfectly stored in our freezers. No sugar, no juice, just blended puree in your freezer. No vitamins loss, brilliant!

So, how’s your apple flood? Can you deal with it now?

Looking forward to hearing whether you liked my photoharvesting.

Enjoy your weekend!

Love you all,

Yours Gardener

Stay Healthy, Vegetables From Garden

 

Hello, my little Friends,

Summer is the best season for our health since the choice of vegetables and fruits is the largest one. So many vitamins in one plate. Who would know that cucumber is one of the oldest cultivated crop, originated mainly in northern India. Cucumbers are excellent source of vitamins K, C and different B vitamins. They are also very good source of sodium, copper, amino acids, carbohydrates, soluble and insoluble fiber content. It is no wonder that your skin will look great after smashing yourself with a piece of cucumber.

The word “radish” comes from the Latin “radix,” meaning “root,” and the Greek word “raphanus,” which translates to “quickly appearing”. Well, I did recognize it, radishes were the first in my garden! Radishes contain significant amounts of vitamin C and several other vitamins and minerals. I love radishes, they are my favorite red buddies!

Mister Onion is the main at my plate. Onions have been used as food for thousands of years; in ancient Egypt, they were worshiped and used in burial rituals. Onion helps killing microbes in your body, a good disinfector as well, not to mention that it contains a lot of vitamins and minerals! Onions kisses…muuah!

Stay in tune for more veggies and fruits from my garden and many fun facts about them!
