Strawberry Raised Bed

We got a new chicken-quarantine-box (a former luxury guinea pig enclosure, with large windows, better ventilation and easy access), so we were able to re-purpose the trusty old one: Now it’s a raised bed for the SO’s perennial strawberry plants.


Viking-style Table

After the viking-style chair I made shortly, I decided to make likewise coffee table as well, this time for my own backyard. It was as uncomplicated and as satisfiying as the first build, made from the same scaffolding oakwood with a 3 cm thickness.


Wooden Viking Chair

In winter I planned to make a viking style chair for the northern germany garden. Now, by chance, we’ve got a very pretty wooden bench and I don’t need another chair anymore. Which doesn’t keep me from building it nonetheless and give it away as a present to a friend of mine who is much into viking lore anyway.


Mushroom Cultivation Bags

German TV can be a cornucopia of documentaries. Of course: Hitler. Up and down. I can’t stand that guy anymore, just because of his omnipresence. This is presumably the most reliable way to prevent something like this from ever happening again – grinding people’s last nerves with it 馃檪

But also interesting stuff! Like for example on professional mushroom growing in an old airforce aircraft shelter. Made me try some cultivation bags on my own again, as I found a left over box of store-bought mycelium in the shed. I didn’t have a clue if it was still any good, but it was worth the try and as usual, I had a little fun.


We’ve got a Greenhouse! Yay!

Last year we got a greenhouse for a very reasonable price compared to now and we finally managed to set it up (with oooonly just a little help…) Oh, and the door is still missing 馃檪 I’m a complete newcomer to greenhouse gardening and now I’m very hooked about the first try!


Mushroom Growing 2021

I officially declare the mushroom season open! And to honor this appropriately, I’ve started new king oyster mushroom cultures that I hope will thrive and grow. This time, I used store-bought grain spawn (this shop is cool, give these guys a try!) – the last propagating attempt with the used up mycelium didn’t work out sooo well.

The whole action doesn’t take much time and effort (and it’s perfectly doable, sitting, with a broken knee…). But it is absolutely vital that you work as cleanly as possible, so to give your spawn an edge over any possible competing contaminats. I’ve got two versions:


Raised Garden Beds: Finishing

So, just before leaving for work for another some weeks, I managed to finish the raised garden beds from earlier this month. I added the first plants (tomatoes, chillies, paprika and strawberries) and installed a paling fence around. Yes, the slightly shabby and irregular look was intended! Done for now.


Raised Garden Beds

It took me some time to make these two garden beds, interruptions and delays included, but now they’re done and ready to grow some greens.
