En natt under torkställningen

En natt under torkställningen

Ojoj, nu var det nära att vi vaskade en månad 🙂 Blev en utenatt hemma. Ut med liggunderlagen under torkställningen på före detta gräsmattan. Kuddar och täcken från innesängen. Vi kom på att vi hade ett myggnät i nån gömma, det funkade perfekt med viss modifiering med ett par brädor och tvingar för att få … Läs mer…

Right On Trek Mac and Cheese Review

Right On Trek Mac and Cheese Review

A challenge with canoe and kayak travel can be finding good food to take canoeing or good food for kayaking. That’s where Right On Trek has come to the rescue. I’ve reviewed their service in the past (Read: Adventure Meals by RightOnTrek Review). The short of that review was that I like it. Recently, they …

Back to the Gulch

Back to the Gulch

Scheduled for next month is the third installment in this year’s Puget Creek stewardship opportunities, this time with an eye to the community. The first date in January focused on the water that flows through the area, where it comes from and where it is going. In April, we took a look at the possibility …

Hallon

Hallon

Vi har både vanliga vilda hallon och trädgårdshallon på tomten. Tycker nog de vilda är godast men det fina med de tama hallonen är storleken och att en del hösthallen kommer riktigt sent på säsongen. Kul med variation här också. Störst mängd hallon plockar vi (eller Pia i allafall) utanför tomten. Grymt gott som sylt, … Läs mer…

Basilika

Vi brukar ha några krukor med basilika i entrén till huset. Ibland när det har blivit lite fler så har de även fått stå i landen bland det andra vi odlat. De som vuxit på friland har inte gått så bra hos oss, så nu när vår nya större tunnel har kommit på plats så … Läs mer…

Svarta vinbär

Svarta vinbär

Svarta vinbär är en tacksam buske som ger bär som fungerar till en hel del. Svarta vinbär är väldigt enkla att föröka med sticklingar eller genom att göra en avläggare. Lätt att få många buskar, tror vi har ett tiotal i marken och nåt tjog i krukor 🙂 Vi använder en del svarta vinbär till … Läs mer…

Litet trädäck i tunneln

Litet trädäck i tunneln

Trädäck i gigantiska format är långt ifrån min favorit, de går under sterilt och grå pesten. Inne i tunneln ville vi dock ha en liten yta för sitt och häng. Tänkte först gammalt tegel på marken. Kanske natursten, det har vi gott om. Kubbgolv hade varit snyggt men vi var inte så sugna på trädfällning … Läs mer…

Plask och balans i högsommarvärme

Igår var det galet varmt i skåneland och på andra platser. Läskigt varmt helt enkelt. På onsdagspaddlingen med ÄSSS var det tänkt lite räddningsövningar det passade bra i värmen. Riktigt bra vattentemperatur för långa bad och kajakklättring. Tretton paddlare övad runt utanför Hunnabadet. Kul med kajakplask och kajaklek.
