Kitchen Garden

The garden is organic, no
pesticides have been used.
Every compartment has a
mix of compost and organic
fertilizer to suit the plants
growing in it.

Plants, like humans, travel to
places far from their origin.
The epazote was imported
as seeds from the US by us
this spring. The yerba buena,
originally grown in Havana,
Cuba survives and thrives
through six Norwegian winters.
The oregano, bergmynte
might have been brought to
the Oslo fjord area by monks
800 years ago.
