At long last I have a large enough yard for a large vegetable garden! This blog documents my adventure in fulfilling a long postponed dream.
Oh, I am so eager to feel some spring-sun on my face and start working in the garden, but that will the soonest happen end of April...It´s just too cold here. And one of my favourite fruits or the jelly made of it is quince - I am envious, they don´t grow here :-( But the leavebuds on our blueberry- and currant-shrubs are also slowly thickening :-) Greetings from Finland!
My father used to make quince preserves. Not really jelly or jam, we called it "quince guggle" for lack of a better word! No one liked it but him, it wasn't sweetened. We actually picked the quince of a big bush in an old cemetery. I think quince is mostly ignored around here, seen as just hard lumps!
