Our backyard garden
Orchards at Villa Greta. We make delicious preserves from apples, plums, gooseberries found here.
Lettuces in various colours and jaggednesses.
Once a year, children with their parents help us prepare sauerkraut and brined cucumbers.
Children can help us collect fruit and vegetables: cucumbers, carrots, beetroots, parsleys, broad beans…
The backyard herbal garden.
The herbal garden next to Villa Greta. The picture presents chives, two species of mint, lovage…
The vegetable garden next to Villa Greta is the achievement of seniors of the family :-)
Currant in bloom. In near future, its fruits will be used for delicious cake or compote.
Collected potatoes will land in the cellar. They will suffice till the next spring.
The apple tree in bloom. Apples from this tree taste best in October.
At Villa Greta, our cooking is based on the slow-food philosophy which means that we cook with regional products, often produced in our own farmstead or in farmsteads of our neighbours.
We need tomatoes for our slow food restaurant :-)
