It seems every blog I've visited lately has had pictures of home grown lovelies,
so I thought I would join in. We haven't grown nearly as much as we usually do
this year but we have some lettuce, spinach and - of course - pumpkins.
We are growing several different pumpkins this year, but we were late planting
so there is no fruit yet on the vines. But we have had some male flowers
so I'm hoping it's just a matter of weeks now before the girls start growing.
It's been very hot here the last few days, so hot in fact that the Swedish
authorities issued a Class 2 warning. For American readers such a warning
about 30 degree weather might seem overly cautious, but you need to know
that we still don't really use air conditioning in Sweden. Many offices, schools,
factories and stores - and any and all homes - still only have heating.
Swedes also have no idea how to act in hot weather. Many try to keep up
the same pace as before, forgetting to hydrate - others just stop eating.
Others still desperately want to make the most out of summer and head
to the beach to lie dead still, frying in the sun for 5 hours straight...
Unlike kitties, who hide away all day and only come out
in the evening for their daily dose of cuddle
My holiday is drawing to a close and this weekend I am off
to Hamburg for the year's most important trade show.
It's always inspiring but also very stressful. I have to find a balance,
keeping my budget and stock in mind while making new purchases.
What are you guys' plans for the weekend?
