Gardening break

Checche - a Peruvian corn variety
I don't believe it! I have been absent from my blog for a week. This as my muscles ache from gardening, and I am completely worn out every evening. But the work on our (Dagfinn Skoglund and mine) allotment is progressing, and soon I will plant out corn from the Andes. Cool!
I bought seeds along the roas close to the town of Pisca, an hour and a half drive away from Cuzco. All the seeds were vacuum packed and properly marked as this Checche corn, with blue spots. Five varieties of corn and five varieties of beans have sprouted in my window and are ready to face the nordic spring climate, not very unike the Norwegian summer climate.

I have to start working on Enjoy Food & Travel again, but I promise you that there will be amazing food stories from my garden allotment as I start to harvest our own grown vegetables.

So do not let me down. There will be daily stories soon once again here on Enjoy Food & Travel.
