I need more space for my trees :-)
It was quite pleasant outside this morning, around 8C (46,4F) and the birds sang as loud as they could. What is quite pleasant in the morning isn’t necessarily pleasant in the afternoon, it wasn’t much warmer when I came home from work. The clouds cover the sky but they are so thin here and there that the sun can shine through them every now and again. When it does wearing a fleece jacket is too much.
It is even more dry in the ground now after the thunder showers than it was before. So there isn’t especially many flies in the forest right now but down by the creek it was on the way to become nasty, they always want to look how my ears and nostrils look from inside and I really don’t like that 🙂 The good thing was that they refused to leave that area so as soon as we walked away from the creek we were fly free.
I thought I would grow melons this year so I bought the hardiest kind I could find. We call it Mango melon but I found the English name Vine peach. The instructions say to prune them heavily otherwise they will take over totally. On the net I found that they will taste best if one preserve them in syrup, they don’t taste a lot raw but then again can be used as a sweet cucumber instead 🙂 I sowed a lot of seeds just to be sure I would at least get one plant, I now have at least ten growing in my kitchen window and more seeds are germinating 🙂
I still haven’t figured out where I’ll plant my tiny hazelnut bushes, they will grow big soon enough so I better find the right places from the start. They now grow in pots so I can think of this all summer before I need to plant them because I also have to think about where I want to try the Shagbark hickory 🙂 I really need to become rich so I can buy more land to plant all my trees 🙂
It is time to feed all the animals and perhaps myself too. I bought some grilled chicken on my way home today, I’ll see if I can make something tasty with it or if I’ll wait until tomorrow to have it. It is odd, it doesn’t cost more to buy a grilled chicken than an ungrilled?!
Have a great day!
