The cold weather makes the landscape frosty, and the ground is frozen hard making it imposible to finish the digging, but I’m almost done and have harvested almost everything. I’ll have to wait till the warmer weather returns next week.

After the early morning drizzle cleared up the day turned out great.

Good weather, good crowd and good sales.

This year I was lucky enough to get the grass cut before the dandelion invasion.

The grass was really thick and made nice easy to rake rows.

I got a good start on the mulch this year.

This is very opportune, because the weather is now very warm, windy and dry, with no rain in sight.

April weather

Yesterday we got a mini snowstorm – high winds and it snowed all day.

I was worried, but the dome didn’t blow away.

I got my skis out and tried skiing, but it’s not yet enough snow for good cross country skiing.

It’s supposed to snow all day today and a little tomorrow and then get cold, so I can hope to get some skiing in this year.

And it is wonderful when everything is white!

Strange weather today!


They say that the remnants of a tropical storm blew in from the Gulf Stream today. 

We sowed 3 trays of pumpkins (hokkari, uchiki kuri etc.) and one of sweet corn. 

  
It’s early, but the weather is conducive. I’ll take them in tonight for warmth to get better germination then out again later. 

This weather should hold for the next 10 days. 

I finally got the apple trees pruned. And the weather is great again. 

  

Everything is fine – the weather is perfect this summer – I don’t have to water, it’s cool enough to get in a good workday every day, and everything is growing well. But, I suppose I have to admit, it’s a cool, rainy summer so far this year. 

  
Some crops are a bit late, but no problem, we may still get a warm spell. 

If, however, the cool weather continues, and we get an early frost, it could be a disaster. It has happened a couple of times during my gardening career, that we haven’t gotten any pumpkins or maize because of a bad summer and early frost. 

But I’m not going to worry about that now. 

This last week has been nothing but weather – rain, wind and cold (but no frost). Today is stormy, and no fun outside, so I’ve mostly been inside reading. I also took a trip to a local nursery to get plants and supplies. I should also have remembered to get ingredients for a big batch of kimchi to make while indoors. 

While my own azeleas are flopping around, getting a thrashing in the wind, I visited the more protected rhododendrons and azeleas in a park in Enk√∂ping.  

  

   

 

  

   

 

Ahhh, the smell of it all!
