While enjoying a wonderful warm spring afternoon, we decided to take a walk and go foraging in the near by woods with my 8 year old daughter and her friend. Spring in the mid of April would be the right time to pick Wild Garlic for a Pesto Recipe. It grows in abundance and is native to Europe. We picked a few bags and I made a pesto at night after preparing the leaves.
Swisshomegarden You Tube Channel
I have been working really hard to learn a whole new skill of uploading videos on my Swisshomegarden You Tube channel.
Rather than letting all my knowledge go to a waste. I got this idea of filming videos of my cooking and our gardening experiences.
The videos will also give an insight into modern Swiss country living.
Above all it will also give my little daughter something to learn and remember me by.
All my videos will be uploaded into this channel.
Introduction Video idea
I had so many ideas of how to make an introduction video. Finally while going for a walk on a sunny spring day, I just took my new video camera with me. My daughter with a neighbour child wanted to cycle. I wanted to make Wild garlic pesto. It was the right time for picking in April. So started filming. It was an awkward first to make the video as I still was not very knowledgeable with this camera.
We picked the wild garlic too. And I made a wild garlic pesto. My first video with some recipe and content. Looking back I would edit that video differently.
I worked hours and hours to get to this point.
Many more Videos are coming up with content about gardening, cooking etc. I hope I build up an audience to share my knowledge with.
