In my lunchbreak i walked up to the fish stand on the Bergweg and got me one herring. Yum. On my way over there i saw this family of Egyptian geese.

Early in the garden

This morning garden work started at nine. We put up the roof, watered the plants in the greenhouse. Some went to the other side, watered the carrots. Some stayed on the side with the greenhouse, seeded beetroot and chard. I planted out the sunflowers in the top of a bed. First weeded it, watered the ground and in they went.

On my way back home i bought a pizza, a pizza margerita. I put up some of the herbs i picked this morning, the oregano, the basil, and some artichokes on them and ate half of it. And for evening dinner i put some sun roasted tomatoes and some cheese on the remaining pizza and put it in the oven. Lovely.

Tomorrow i will start at nine again. Much better in this warm weather.

I hope you will enjoy your weekend. Salute!
