Week 21 in our allotment plot – We did it!

Even after being away for 2.5 weeks our crops survived. We worried in vain that the weather would be too dry.

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!

Swedish Summer West Coast Style – Week 1

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.

The Henley Reggata. We gotta go again next year.

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.

Ladies who Bollywood dance

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.

Bollywood dance lessons

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.

Week 17 harvest

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.

Yay!
