The annual field day for the students of sustainable development at Uppsala University took place today. They came out to Timogarden for an afternoon of garden work. This year however, it was staff members from the institution that came for the day.

Because of rain yesterday we had to change plans in order to stay out of the mud, and do tasks like plant tree seedlings to extent the hedge.


Work on the compost, turning last years compost and starting a new pile with frost damaged crops, manure and rock dust.


And as the day warmed up and dried everything out a bit we did a little digging in the empty pond, piling the dirt on the mound.

It’s great for me to get some of the heavy chores of autumn done early.
