En kort norsk video om litt av det jeg høster i hagen for tiden. Dette i forbindelse med et intervju til et magasin artikkel som ble gjennomført (på avstand) i forrige uke!
Planter som nevnes er
Strandkål (Crambe maritima)
Bendelløk (Allium scorodoprasum)
Prærieløk eller Chicago-løk (Allium cernuum)
Stjernemelde eller Kaukasisk spinat (Hablitzia tamnoides)
Og det bør nevnes at jeg kunne fått alle mine grønnsaker fra ute i hagen denne våren (men noen tar jeg også fra kjelleren).
Lagt ut foreløpig kun på Facebook av Naturvernforbund i Trøndelag!
