It's been almost a year since a neighbour came to prepare our potatoe land with a tractor (see in "We want potatoes!!!"). This year we have better weather conditions in the end of May than last year and we can put in our potatoes one week earlier, which will hopefully also result in an earlier crop!
Approx. 100m2 of land need to be filled with our old potatoes from last year.
Meaning 12 rows...
...four of those boxes...
...and afterwards bank up earth again.
Now we have to wait again till August until our first fresh potatoes will be ready to eat. Have a little patience... :-)
One of our favorite destinations is the Pite River (Piteälven) as already mentioned in our earlier posts. Many campers like to stay there because it's quiet and peaceful and there are several places where you can stay over night (wild camping) without any fuzz. Now that the snow is gone we enjoy going there more often.
It's good to have a lot of firewood!
What a place for a campfire!
Grilled steak with baguette and tzatziki on a chopped piece of wood (our plate)...YUMMY!
Since thursday (Kristi himmelfärdsdag) the weather has completely changed - from one day to another. No night frost anymore. From earlier temperatures of 6 degrees C during daytime up to 26 degrees C (warmer than in mid Europe for a change!).
