Sunny and cold morning.
The night has been rather cold and the morning walk felt somewhat chilly even though the sun shone with full power and there were only a few clouds around, the weak wind didn’t make much difference though. I could hear cranes shouting out on the bog and trumpet swans flew just a few meters above our heads. We walked to the little lake because I thought there might be a few birds there now but none could be seen, the lake had frozen during the night and the big lake would probably have some open water spots so they would go there instead.
I saw some new fence poles by the old decaying cottage so I guess that it soon will be torn down to make place for cattle. I took a few photos and You can see them in my NG photo album: National Geographic. Just click on the red text and a new window should open up showing my photos. You’ll also be able to see two that I took with my Hasselblad camera that I won’t post here. Nothing much happened during our walk though, not even the sound of aa animal moving around could be heard.
I bought some vegetable seeds when I was at the super market yesterday, they were for some reason price reduced with 20% so I thought why not 🙂 I bought a big pack with broad beans and normal sized packages with spring onion, broccoli, squash and different colored carrots. The ground here isn’t good enough for carrots though, too many pebbles in it so they split and get fun shapes but I was thinking of growing those in raised beds together with the spring onions. If lucky that will confuse both the carrot and onion flies.
I’m thinking of finding a potato that is resistant towards potato blight which is a big problem here, I guess the air is too humid so it thrives on my potatoes every time I grow them. I will of course also sow at least one pumpkin plant, after all I did get one pumpkin last summer even if I didn’t see it until all leafs had been frost-bitten 🙂 I’ll sow some tomato seeds today too, can’t live without at least a few own grown tomatoes 🙂
It is time for the last cup of tea for the day, after that a short nap and then we’ll head out for another walk. Nova’s ear seems better and doesn’t hurt any longer, I have plenty of medicine for her so I’ll just keep on dropping it into her ear for as long as it is needed.
Have a great day!
