GET THEM BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE DOES!

Well, we all probably know the feeling of passing by some delicious edible berries and thinking “I will pick then next weekend”, but you either do not get to it, forget it or when you finally go out to harvest them, they have already been eaten by either birds, insects or the cold. This time…

THREE MONTHS

I cannot believe that three months have gone by since we were blessed with this little bird. A little girl who knows what she wants and is not afraid of saying it – out loud… Very loud. Especially if her needs are not met immediately. I bet the temper and lack of patience is something…

TRAVELLING LIGHT

I have written about how much I love wrapping my baby. It makes everything so much easier – especially when I had to travel with her. I wanted to make it as light and minimalistic as possible, because I knew that my mum and I would love to wander around on small tracks where a…

ROSE HIP: IT IS NOT TOO LATE

Most Danish coasts are covered by the invasive plant called rugosa rose. It comes from the east and is very much enjoyed by the summer cottage owners because their flowers smell nice and you can eat rose hips in late summer/early autumn. Sadly, this plant spreads like wildfire and overgrows the coastal areas like it…

A SMALL HOLIDAY

I have not posted here in forever, and I really apologise for yet again abandoning this blog. Though I am back with more inspiration than ever, and I am ready to tell you about my recent adventures with my little girl. My family has some good friends who own a small summer cottage on the…

BABYWEARING IN NATURE

I often get a few glares from people when they see me wearing my girl in a wrap or a sling. They cannot seem to understand how practical it is. I even had a question asking me what I do if I want to do something for myself, and I answered: “Well, then I have…

THE END OF SUMMER

I have not written here for a while due to parenthood duties and the fact that my muse seemed to have disappeared in august. But I am finally back, and I cannot wait to share my life with you guys. In this writing hour, summer comes to an end… A rather sad feeling actually. But…

UNPLANNED JERUSALEM ARTICHOKES

Well, this really needs an explanation. As you might remember from my last post about the radishes, we did not get to harvest anything but their pods. I first thought it was because the radishes did not have enough room in the pot they were sowed or because we were too late, but then I…

BEETS FROM POTS

Just look at those deep colours! Our first beet harvest, and a very important one, because when we take these big ones up, they will make room for the smaller ones to grow larger. I do not remember our beets growing as big last year, and once again I think I have to thank our…

RASPBERRY PICKING

I cannot be the only one who tends to make big plans about going outside to pick different berries for different delicious recipes to make at home, but once out there, I end up eating them all… It always happens when you put me in front of berries. I love to sit and munch them…

SLEEP DUST OF THE FOREST

There is something about the forest and its many sounds that work like magic for the baby. She falls asleep the moment I step outside, and it just seems like the gentle whisper as the wind rushes through the trees and the distant songs from the birds work as lullabies for her. The sling works…

THE FIST TOMATOES

They are finally here! Our first tomatoes of this year from the balcony. I do not know if you remember last year, where I wrote about how we grew tomatoes on the balcony. Well, from our experience with how much space they needed, we decided to find smaller ones to harvest seeds from and to…
