On a February day we sat in our office working when suddenly Nick shouts: "Look, a deer!". Indeed it was a deer, walking peacefully on our open front yard, obviously on its way somewhere.
In March I started to plant a lot of tomatoes. 5 varieties, 8 - 15 plants per variety, planted in pots indoors. It all looked very well in the beginning, the plants where growing, enjoying the sun behind the window. I transferred them into bigger pots once they grew out of their pot.
I have a lot of calendula plants in my garden. Usually too much, as they tend to sow themselves in the fall and rise in the most surprising places the next spring. I let them rise, as they are actually really beneficial plants to have in any garden!
After a long winter and spring which just dragged on cold, summer 2017 has finally arrived. Here are some glimpses from our garden.
Over the last weeks I prepared my strawberry field. I turned the earth upside down, removed hundreds of stones (ok 11), and set a border. In order to grow strawberry easily I first put newspaper on the ground and covered that with organic straw. Why easily?
