The days between Christmas and New Year are called mellandagar (between days). Alot of people take these days off.

The weather has warmed up considerably. Much of the snow has melted, and it’s no good skiing any more, so I got to work building another cabbage cage out behind the house.

I usually use reclaimed wood, but for this I bought some new lumber and fine mesh chicken net.


Other than that there has been alot of reading going on here these rainy icey days – mostly garden magazines such as The English Garden, but I also finished off a Neil Gaiman book called Fragile Things (really good) and have started another book: The Road to Eleusis. There is no end in sight for the opportunities to read, study and learn more.
