Anyways, it sounds great, especially if you have this.

No, that’s a weird idea.
So who pays for the upkeep of all those remote electricity lines?

What lines? A proper cabin is nowhere close to a power line.
Away from electromagnetic noise and all the psyncopaths. One can tune to the primordial rhythm of Nature. It's better than blues...

Rainy and misty weather today. Everything still and half-asleep, only the grass getting greener.
I went out to refill the bird feeder. The squirrel (totally wet) noticed me first and lazily unlatched from the from the hole. When I started taking off the feeder, it turned out there was the nuthatch latched to the hole on the other side, so we both jumped away surprised. The seed was spilt, now around 20 birds fighting on the ground for it.

Someone ate my tomatoes. All from red to yellow, only completely green left. There are around 50 suspects.

Can you please remind me the crop calendar of tomatoes in Norway?

If memory serves me right, there is a brief window between the old snow melting and the new snow falling. You have to hit that. Like a bird.

In your face! If you look very carefully, you'll see tiny green sprouts. I forgot what grows in that particular place, but I sowed and planted almost 30 different vegetables and fruit bushes on a square plot according to companion planting rules (who likes/dislikes to grow next to whom). I considered writing an algorithm to solve it, but my own brain worked faster exposed to fresh air, scent of new grass and sun. A gardener in trance :-D

The deer eating my garden is pregnant :-) She doesn't run away when I come to watch her. A lot of beautiful moments to come this summer mefeels.

Probably a period of 2 weeks.

It's already light whole døgn. And I've just made another smart buy - a trap camera with noctovision to spy on my neighbours living in a hole on my farm. A fox or grevling.

Global abundance estimates for 9,700 bird species, Callaghan et al, PNAS May 25, 2021 118 (21)
https://www.pnas.org/content/118/21/e2023170118

By aggregating the species-level estimates, we find that there are ∼50 billion individual birds in the world at present.

They will have to reassess this number after my Norwegian countryside escape :-D
