Summer Garden and “Something for the Weekend”


I do not have a veggie garden anymore but these few pots and containers are very satisfying too. Johanna’s homestead..says Mr. Walker ;0)

The squirrels really enjoy my strawberries. Thank goodness the shops are full of Summer Harvest.

I love crumbles and have many recipes for them. This is my favorite summer version, a very healthy version!!! You can use any kind of soft fruits but the blue berries is a must since it will give the dish its natural sweetness.


Summer Crumble

  • 2 Apples (Peeled, cored and sliced)
  • 1 Cup blue berries
  • 2 Cups strawberries
  • 2 pears, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp tapioca flour/starch or corn starch
  • 1 Cup almond flour
  • 1 Cup ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp agave syrup or honey
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 Cup canola oil
  • a little (almond) milk
  • I used a shallow oven proof dish of 9X12X 3 inches.


Pre-heat oven at 375F/ 200C

Grease the dish lightly and mix fruit. Dust the fruit with the tapioca, that will bind the fluids of the cooked fruits.

Mix all other ingredients into nice crumbles, add a little milk if it looks too dry. Divide the crumbles over the fruit. It might not look that much but the baking powder will double the amount.

In the oven for about 25 min. or when golden brown.

Nice as dessert, breakfast, with a cuppa tea/ hot cocoa….or whenever!


Ik heb geen moestuin meer maar een hier en daar toch even wat groente en fruit..Meneer Walker noemt t Johanna’s boerderij. Als je t recept kopieert naar Google Translate, dan krijg je de Nederlandse versie.

Love and Liefs Johanna
