She has also dried the seeds of the stinging nettles, which, as she explained to me during my last visit, can be used in many ways. In order to attract many insects with colourful flowers next year, the farmer collects daisy seeds, for example, and dries them to sow them in spring. Some of the plants, including dahlias, hibernate in the cellar.
Autumn is a special time for our local farmers and producers. This is reflected above all in the Salzburg Harvest Festival, which for over 20 years has been highlighting the traditions, stories, culinary delights and crafts of the Alpine region at numerous events and bringing them to life - here in the Salzburger Sportwelt too! At the numerous weekly markets in Radstadt, Altenmarkt and St. Johann, the "treasures" of our producers are available, fresh or already processed. How do you prefer to enjoy fruit and vegetables?
