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!!!!

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!




And then the clouds got heavy, it rained and became dark, and the party got going. 

The annual Morhers Day Buffet is enjoying very nice weather this year. 

Some of the crew taking a break while setting up up for a big party in the garden. 

A few days ago a project group from Uppsala University came out to take part of some spring activities in the garden. 


In spite of the less than conducive weather, we got a lot done, like getting the pumpkin patch ready – harvesting some winter survivors, weeding, spreading compost and tilling. 



We also started a new compost pile in the empty space. 

In the other crop circles we planted potatoes and made raised beds into which we put in leeks and onions and carrot seeds.

A little bit of everything. 

And here’s their video

We were out on a yule excursion the other day and found these sloe. Delicious after the frost and thaw. The birds love them too. 

Happy New Years Eve!
