Welcome to our 'holiday resort' ;-)

Summer time is our family guests' favorite time to visit us in Lapland.

Some like sailing on our cottage lake...

...others like to be pulled by a motor boat whilst fishing...

...laying a net for our visitors...

...and afterwards preparing smoked fish...

...picking eatable mushrooms in the forest...to dry, fry or make a creamy soup of...

Sooner...
...or later...

...all good times come to an end... Välkommen åter! :-)

We want potatoes!!!

Yes, we can grow potatoes even in Lapland at the arctic circle! Our neighbour does it, why shouldn't we?

There goes our lawn...(Good! Still got plenty of it to mow.:/)
And there it is: our 100m2 of potatoe land...thank you!:-)

Followup: We put in potatoes in the second week of June and harvested them mid September. Very good potatoes for a long winter!

Some work, barbecue and relaxation

I've been sooo lazy taking pictures lately, I know! The main reason for this was because of lack of time and camera out of reach. I promise, I will do more photo posts in the rest of this year. :-)

...so this is where we relax in our free time...

...but first there is work to do - filling up our stock of wood...

...a couple of days of hard work...

...and at the end of the day...barbecue!!!
