Even after being away for 2.5 weeks our crops survived. We worried in vain that the weather would be too dry.
We did it! We’re actually growing food!
We live off our variety of salads and spinach.
We can pick the beets any day now and the carrots will soon be next.
We also have potatoes, runner beans, leeks, kale……Stay tuned as we get the hang of this.
Oh, I want to plant pumpkins for holiday pies!
My Swede loves nothing better than being “in paradise”. So here we’ve been for one week.The Swedes say,
“away is good but home is best”.
Add on the drinks with neighbors (which equals life long firends), the drink at the neighbors, visits from old friends, the long walks, swims, etc…..
What will this week bring?
Nice things happen to me in Sweden.
My Swede’s colleague arranged for us to join him at the annual Henley Regatta. What a treat. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Our last ladies lunch of the season was super fun because instead of our usual fireside chat where someone talks at us, we actually participated while we learned something.
Sadly Aman, our local Bollywood teacher will be leaving us this month, back to India and on to new adventures. But I will never forget her and hopefully not my Bollywood moves either.
When I realized my mobile telephone was dead I was so disappointed because I couldn’t take photos of the allotment. Everything we planted is coming up and we can eat the lettuces and spinach. Se we took some home.
