Dreaming of veggies

I miss the garden! Only a couple of months left until i can start sewing seeds 😉                 

Köksträdgården The Kitchen Garden

A large portion of this weekend was spent digging in the garden. With all this early Spring weather, we’ve been able to get a head start. We are enlarging the kitchen garden; a new large circle has been dug which I plan to segment like a big cake, and we dug up some old stone […]

Nordiska Trädgårdar

This weekend we were at Scandinavias largest garden show – Nordiska Trädgårdar. It was just what I needed after a grey, wet winter. Spring is in the air, the soil is getting warmer every day, and today at least, the sky is blue. Pictures speak louder than words, so here are some snaps I took. […]

You got to have plans

Monet’s garden and house This time of year, it seems as though all I am doing is making plans, plans and more plans. Plans for the garden, plans for our on-site shop, plans for the interior, plans for what kind of packages we are going to have, never ending lists. What I really need is […]
