We Construct a New Building
We have started the build of a workshop, with bathrooms, a large food prepping kitchen and holiday lets. Our budget is 1 mill SEK and we plan to do most of the work ourselves. The building is a major part of our plan to live off the farm and will also have solar panels on the entire roof towards the south.
Growing Sunflowers for the First Time
This year I’ve grown sunflowers for the first time. They are magnificent flowers and I hope to be able to harvest seeds from them too.
Preserving Our Harvest
This time of year, it is all about taking care of the produce from the garden. We harvest, eat, and preserve everything we cannot manage to eat fresh. It is fun to try out different preservation methods and watch the shelves in the pantry fill up.
Lemon Squash Bread
This is a good way to use squash. The cake is very tasty and lasts for several days in room temperature.
Flower Borders at Bliderud
The garden borders at Bliderud are under development. Some are created from scratch, while others are redesigned. But then again, I assume garden borders never are completely finished.
Long Flower Border
The long flower border is a combination of small trees, shrubs and perennials. For variation a few annuals are placed here and there every year.
