A couple of pictures of the garden at midnight. 

The crop circles are pretty well filled out now, except for a few beds saved for later. 


The season for weeding has now started. 

The saturday market at Fyristorg is warming up. More and more seasonal flowers and vegetables are coming and starting to supersede the potatoes, sauerkraut and cinnamon rolls. 

More rain and warmer nights. It’s a hectic time now to get everything planted out. 



Tomatoes and peppers potted


The earlier stuff is looking good too. 

My peony rockii is blooming!


Along with friends

We finally got a substantial rain – ca 16 mm the last 48 hrs – the first in months. Who would have thought Sweden would have a draught. The water table is at an all time low in many areas. 

Most of the spring chores, however, are done – seeds and plants in and watered mostly by hand. After the rain is a good time to start putting out the flax straw mulch, especially in the walkways. 

The first trays of cabbage are planted and covered with fleece. 


There are still a lot of pumpkins and squash left to plant out, but the cold nights of the first week of June are not in the weather predictions this year so…

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

The students who were out helping in the garden made a video. Nice

I had a big birthday party the other day. I might as well say it – I ‘m 70 now. 


And feeling pretty good. 

The presents I got were mostly trees, bushes and plants. But the biggest and most impressive was this;


brought in by tractor by the farmer here –  a present from Magnus Eriksson and his family. 


A found object from some corner of this farm. 


A fantastic work of art formed by volcanos and carved by glaciers.
