After all the rain, maybe we get a few days of warmer and sunnier weather. The grass has been growing like crazy, and I was finally able to cut it and rake a bit of mulch together. I put it around the pumpkins, but still, it’s not enough. 

Mulching is hard work and time consuming. I’ll probably have to finish it off with flax straw, altho grass has a better fertilizing value.


I could rake some more, but instead we’re off for a few days cruise to Helsinki.
