This shed is almost completely made of salvaged building material. 


Some really old lumber that anyone else would take to the dump. 


But with a coat of red barn paint (falu red) it looks like new and will probably last another 50 years. 

 

Some art left behind

 

Taking it easy again

Still going strong

Big party tomorrow!

We are now busy getting everything in order for the Big Garden Party festival. Weeding, watering, cleaning, baking, buying stuff, planning and putting into action all the crazy ideas for a fun time this coming saturday 22 july. 


Everyone we know and/or know us are welcome!!!!

Now that I’ve microweeded thoroughly and created mini monocultures, I turn on the water. Soon the weeds will be back making polyculture again. 


It’s been very dry this spring, but almost everything has grown very well with a bit of spot watering. Now for some mass watering. 

After 10 days in the far north mountain hiking, doing maintainance at the old homestead and enjoying the Pajala market, I’m back home and microweeding in the garden again with my trusty hori hori. 


There is much more to see in the mountains around Abisko. 

Like people




Mountan bikes


Sami huts



Alpine flowers



Lichens




Stone



And such!

Deeper into the mountains. 

A couple days of trekking is a wounderful relief from the garden chores. 

A bit noisy, but so soothing!
