Happy Solstice!

Dandelions in all their glory, but I love the sight and smell of new cut grass.

Happy Equinox!

First market this year at Fyristorg.

Not many sellers and not many buyers, but it’s going pretty good for this time of year.

It is now officially announced: The Uppsala Fermentation Day

Same place as last year – at the Culture Oasis.

We’ll be there selling our fermentations and I’ll give a demonstration on how to make your own miso at home.

Yesterday was the darkest day. The sun rose late and went down early, and besides that, a heavy fog and drizzle covered the land. Last night was the longest night, but at 05:19 the tide changed. It’s supposed to get brighter till midsummer.

We’ll see!

The bees are still active getting some more nectar for winter.

Yesterday was the annual market at Järna outside Stockholm. We went not to sell but to soak in the atmosphere, meet friends and make some new contacts – like people into fermenting as well as ecological gardening.

Lots of good ideas and inspiration.

I met some fermenters too (but no pictures alas). I did get info to try to get them to come to Uppsala for the next Fermentation Festival in March next year.
