So this is what was going on in the northern germany garden over the last few days: My SO (with a little external help) did the lion’s share and I only contributed the detail work, but: Slowly but surely things finally take shape:
This is the maple tree that’s growing in the light well in front of my shop window. I guess it grew from a flying seed that landed in the well about 3 years ago. It was never watered (besides the little rain the well receives) nor ever been cared for in any way, nonetheless it has grown greatly.
A real marine maple tree – I’ll take it out this fall and plant it in the garden.
I don’t know why, but I just love this sunny casual snapshot of the mossy, overgrown and “natural” garden in the northern germany refuge.
I started tearing down the old and worn brick and stone grill in the northern germany refuge today. I didn’t expect it to be that sturdy – never judge a book by it’s cover! Whoever built this monster, he really knew what he was doing!
Yesterdays dinner from one of the last small artisanal butchers around here. Well-hung, extra juicy and very flavourful.
This is what the small plantation on my windowsill did within the last 7 days: The first delicate sprouts have appeared.
First came the bok choi, then, on the same day swiss chard, spinach #1 and thyme. Lastly the first zucchini.

I’m (somewhat) social too!
