We have several large pine trees at the cottage. High as skyscrapers, and with many years behind them. In spring down here in the southern part of Sweden where I live, all new green shoots are starting to break out.
As all over the world up here in Scandinavia, we have weeds. They are stubborn as sin and make your otherwise lovely garden life into a small hell. With its long roots and the ability to spread like … weed, I and a lot of gardeners with me, have a constant battle against the pesky leaves, but why not take them into the kitchen instead?
Spring has been slow up here in the North, and as all Scandinavians do, we wait eagerly to take out the grill. I took out the grill in January so I do not care so much about, whether it is spring, summer, autumn or winter. I like to barbecue year round!
