My little garden is growing...

...even summer is not really here yet. Until now we had about 4 days hot summer weather and now it's only 15 degrees. But my zucchinis are growing a lot since the hot impact for 4 days. They are still minis but I hope they are growing big.

Salad, it's skinny growing and the swiss chard looks kinda weird. I thought it will look different but we will see what's happening the next few weeks. 

I am happy my lavender and rose plants are growing nice. They bring a little bit of color and summer breath into our garden. 

I have some common herbes like parsley, lemon balm, wild chive, wild oregano, peppermint, basilic and nasturtium. Since I learned how to harvest basilic it's growing so fast and nice.

 Here you can see some cucumber on the old compost soil. I didn't plant them, they grow from it self. I think maybe from the old seeds in the compost soil. It's a little surprise :)

Also there I planted two pumpkin plants. Hope they will come.

 I still can't see any tomatoes. But the bush is growing high.

 What's that? I don't know anymore. Maybe cucumber also?? You know it??

July is three days away and we hope for some warm sunny summer months and a good home harvest.

*Nice Day*

Our kitchen remodel...

Kitchen before

3D Kitchenplaner

My dad, mum and boyfriend worked for 3 days to transform our old tight kitchen into a new open large modern kitchen. I was planing the whole thing about 1 year ago on my computer in a 3D kitchenplaner tool. 
Now we finally made it happened. We are so happy with it. I am proud my dad can do and know so much different things. Some safe electrician stuff, carpenter, plumbing. We did everything on our self and we've saved so much money. My mum cleaned all the kitchen cabinets and fronts, I am glad I did not have to do that also.

Now five people can stand in the kitchen and prepare a delicious dinner. Before you don't even think about that, maximum one person was alright two persons were already a big mess. 

At the beginning

Dishwasher is already gone for a while

Beside the dishwasher under the new breakfast bar I bought a new sideboard from Ikea for some cookbooks, decoration etc. It has now the perfect length for two people sitting there. The beech wood we bought for some good $$ :). I sanded and painted it with a pre paint, sanded it again and finished it twice with a high-solid paint.

For the microwave my dad fixed from an old closet we didn't use anymore a new cabinet with an extra shelfboard in it for breakfast goods.

Kitchen after

The only thing we still have to do is the floor. But not now, it can wait for some time. The parquet floor is already in the basement waiting for his use but we still have to cut out the rest of the concrete from the floor. 

But first we enjoy the summer and then other things can come.

Tuna-Giabatta sandwich...

Tuna Sandwich
...2 days ago we made homemade pizza and I always do some leftover path for a bread or two. This time I made a flat Italian giabatta bread with dried tomatoes and green olives.
Yesterday I used some of the bread for a delicious healthy tuna sandwich for dinner. I just mixed half can tuna in water with some yogurt, mayo and herbs. The bread in half with two slices cheese for about 10 minutes in the oven and voilà.
It already smells goood :)
Put the tuna paste an egg in slices and pickles in slices over it and enjoy it.
