Om mig

I am a woman "in the flower of my age". My great hobby is making silver jewellery out of silver clay and sterling silver. Sometimes I sell some too, because I cannot use it all myself. Other interests are SEVEN gorgeous grandchildren - nine with my husband's two, gardening, books, kayaking, photo... I write this blog in English to keep up the language after my retirement. I was a teacher in English and French for 18 years (so I ought to have a blog in French too...) and assistant head at a school for 15 years. My second blog shows my handmade silver jewellery.

Physalis - two kinds

Two different kinds of physalis. The big ones are the same as the ones you can buy in the shop. The small ones are not at all sour/sourish when ripe and not as good if you ask me. But they carry more berries and ripen earlier (picture three).One Swedish name is "kapkrusbär"- that is what you call the big ones I think (picture two).

I have done some research:
The big berries: Physalis peruviana, "kapkrusbär".
The small berries: Physalis pruinosa, "gyllenbär".

Diona gröna fingrar är otroliga, nu blev de gula bär dessutom! Eller är det frukter??

Bär kallas de väl. Och gula ska dom bli när dom är mogna - alla hinner inte bli det tyvärr. Men då är dom goda!
