harvest time

Our weather is still very mild and even though it's raining quite a bit we still spend lot of time outside. Hiking, mushroom picking, prepping the yard and garden for winter.
Je stale jeste teplo i kdyz dost casto prsi. To nam ale nebrani chodit na prochazky, na houby, pripravovat zahradu na zimu a vubec travit hodne casu na cerstvem vzduchu :)





 Mushroom galore
Houbove nadeleni


 Boletus

They are delicious.
Jsou vyborne.

A long overdue blog update…

I've been busy these past couple months, enjoying summer, gardening and spending time with friends and family and so it happened without planing that I took a " Blog Holiday " ;)  But I am back and here are some pics to show you what I've been up to.....

Ani nevim jak se to stalo, neplanovane "blogove prazdniny" se protahly a uz je tu podzim. Leto me naprosto pohltilo, zahrada, pratele, rodina ( no vzdyt to vsichni znate) ale jsem zpet a vy muzete nahlednout, co se u nas deje.....



















Plum dumplings.
Svestkove knedliky.






Growing grandsons ♥
A vnoucci povyrostli ♥




Fun, quick project at my daughters request.....
Rychlovka na dcerino prani.....


 and here is Koa, modeling his new booties.
Koa predvadi jeho nove backurky.


I made comfrey oitment. We have comfrey growing like weeds in our garden.
Put 2 handfuls of clean, cut up comfrey root ( you can add leaves too) in to 1/2 kg lard and cook for 10 minutes. Let cool and sit for 24 ours, then reheat and strain into clean container. I keep mine in the fridge. 
 
Uvarila jsem  Kostivalovy krem.
Do 1/2 kg sádla přidáme 2 hrsti nakrájených očištěných kořenů (příp. i listů) a vše 10 minut smažíme. Druhý den mast mírně zahřejeme, přepasírujeme přes plátýnko a slijeme do kelímků. Mast jsem si ulozila do lednice.
