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…

BABY WEARING

On the go, when doing practical stuff at home or just whenever the little one needs her mum and body contact. My little girl is not too fond of strollers, because she likes to be close to us. She wants to be able to see, feel and hear us all the time, which the stroller…

FLOWERY PARK

A flowery park can really make you feel like a princess… Am I right? Even though it is the extremely neatly trimmed and very unnatural compared to the beautiful wild biodiverse forests this blog usually considers magical, I cannot help to actually like it. A meadow like this sparks a hint of happiness inside of…

LUNCH AT THE BEACH

There is nothing like sitting at the beach in the sunlight – even though it is still slightly chilly by the water. The waves were gently flushing ashore with calm sighs as they rhythmically reached the sandy beach. I decided to make the most of the day since the weather forecast promised rain this afternoon….

RELAXATION

Not from blogging but just from the world for a brief moment. As the spring weather has finally decided to shine upon us with warmth and sunny skies, it itches in my feet to get outside. Sadly, if I walk more than 5 km, I tend to get a backache due to my pregnancy. The…

FORAGE SEAWEED

I attended a workshop, where we got to harvest seaweed from one of the many beaches in Denmark. And it was just about time, because soon it will be too late – the water will be too warm. Spring, autumn and winter are the best seasons for harvest. We are so lucky in Denmark that…

FORAGING IN PARKS

You do not have to go to a forest to forage wild herbs. A public city park can be filled with edible plants as long as you make sure to check the pollution intensity in the area, the use of pesticides and of course always – ALWAYS – wash them before use. Yet, I heard…

WILD FOOD FESTIVAL

Last weekend we had a Wild Food Festival in my city, and it was quite the experience. I loved to see how popular it became, and it truly showed that the citizens were curious about foraging wild food and learn more about it. I have to admit that I have underestimated many city people. Just…

EARLY GARDEN WORK

Even though it is still slightly chilly outside and a bit too early for the huge sowing feast, there is still work to do in the garden. With your butt risen up to the sun, you can make lines with spinach, radishes and other early veggies that are more resistant to the cold than others….

COMMON RUSH

Juncus effusus or more commonly called, soft rush. Did you know that in old days, the insides of the plant was used as wicks? It is true, and quite possible. If you take its smooth cylinder stem and carefully peek off the green coat, you will be able to press out with your nail (that’s…

AN AFTERNOON WALK

The sun was so beautiful today. It was warm, yet the ground was still frozen, and it was like spring met winter on neutral ground. I went out for a walk after work, and it was absolutely fantastic to see how things are slowly, very slowly, coming to life despite the frosty weather. There was…
