Heavy garden traffic

While the rest of my family is on vacation, I am at home, working the weekends!

At least it gives me the possibility, to really convey the beauty of having a garden – and if you do have one already, to urge you to plant some flowers which attract lots and lots of pollinators: vetches, sainfoin (of course), cornflower, viper’s bugloss, heather, buckwheat and lavender are just a few of those, which come to mind. The advantages are obvious: not only do you help establish and maintain a healthy population of pollinators, which are also supposed to pollinate your vegetables, but also weeding is just so much more interesting when the air is buzzing around you with life! I used the 2 hours this morning before temperatures became unbearable, to weed the strawberry bed, and here are just a few minor impressions of what I was able to observe: This really is like a small vacation on its own, refilling the batteries to spend the rest of the day at the computer, typing away.

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
