Berba ljubičastog bosiljka / Harvesting Purple Basil

Photo: Berba ljubičastog bosiljka / Harvesting Purple BasilOve je godine izvrstan, ljubičast do nemogućih tonova :) Možda zbog toga što smo ga posijali među paprike :) ... Kažu da se rajčica i bosiljak dobro slažu, osim kad je rajčica visoka ili joj se ne režu donje grane :)Harvesting Purple BasilExcellent this season, unbelievably purple :) It may be because we sow it with paprikas :)Permakultura i ljubičasti bosiljak

10000 rajčica / 10000 tomatoes

Sorta je Vesennij Mieurinskij, a prava tajna plodnosti nije u sorti, već u načinu uzgoja :)10000 TomatoesOn this tomato "tree" there is more than 100 tomatoes (small, though). Variety is Vesennij Mieurinskij. The real cause of fruitfulness is not variety of tomato, but the way of growing :)Permakultura i Vesennij Mieurinskij
