Pea Harvest [Daily Photo #116]

Peas are my favourite edible to grow, because they don't require much, they don't mind cold so you can plant them early, you can grow peas in small pots too, and they enrich the soil for whoever you plant after!

Tapiola [Daily Photo #113]

Today I worked on my book in a café for the first time! Despite the fact that I'd slept for only 2,5 hours, I managed to brainstorm a scene and came to a very important conclusion: it needs crossdressing. =D Everything is better with crossdressing!

Cloudberry [Daily Photo #112]

Cloudberries are getting bigger and bigger!

Wikipedia says,

“The ripe fruits are golden-yellow, soft and juicy, and are rich in vitamin C. When eaten fresh, cloudberries have a distinctive tart taste. When over-ripe, they have a creamy texture somewhat like yogurt and a sweetened flavour. They are often made into jams, juices, tarts, and liqueurs. In Finland, the berries are eaten with heated "leipäjuusto" (a local cheese; the name translates to "bread-cheese"), as well as cream and sugar. In Sweden, cloudberries (sv. hjortron) and cloudberry jam are used as a topping for ice cream, pancakes, and waffles. In Norway, they are often mixed with whipped cream and sugar to be served as a dessert called "Multekrem" (cloudberry cream), as a jam or as an ingredient in homemade ice cream. Cloudberry yoghurt—molte-/multeyoughurt—is a supermarket item in Norway.”

We found this shopping list on a bus stop bench today. It's so specific about things! For example, cucumber must be crooked! o_O
