Tentative Progress in the Northern Germany Garden

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:


My Own Marine-Maple-Tree

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.


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.


War Zone BBQ

The terrace still looks devastated like after a friggin’ grenade impact… Nonetheless we had a relaxed and very pleasant spontaneous grilling event with great company yesterday evening. Even my wive’s old football grill finally came into operation again.


Demolition Man!!!

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!


Fencing

We also started fencing the property these days. Slowly but surely everything is coming together…


Windowsill Update April 2019

They seem to like their home and they really seem to like growing! If they go on like this I will move them to the garden bed by May.


Windowsill Update March 2019

So the hatchery is now 10 days old and some of the seeds have germinated, other are still a little reluctant. I’m planning to prick out the larger ones this afternoon.


420g Rib Eye Steak

Yesterdays dinner from one of the last small artisanal butchers around here. Well-hung, extra juicy and very flavourful.

On the grill

After 5 minutes rest


First Tentative Signs of Green

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 curious.
