After I had posted photos of salads from my garden on facebook, several friends asked me if they could come and have a look, and to come and learn about edible plants, or edimentals as a crazy garden and salad man here in Trondheim calls plants which are both edible and ornamental. Then the idea of an open day in my garden was born, and I created a facebook event: Colourful Salads.
The open day was yesterday. First my parents came, they wanted to fill their buckets with black currants, to make jam.
And soon the garden filled with colourful women, eager to learn how to make colourful salads.
What fun to walk around with them, showing them my garden, talking about the plants and then let them all pick what they wanted to make their own salads.
This photo was taken by one of the women. Isn´t it beautiful :-)
And here is another one, from the making :-)
Thank you dear women for colouring my day.
