Week 36 and 37 at Allmogegården

The last few days at Allmogegården have been full of sun, harvesting, mushrooms, threshing and new WWOOFers. Now there are 12 people from Sweden, UK, Australia, France and Germany and Elias was here for his work experience. 
The main part was getting the crops from the fields, we even worked on a Sunday because we had to take advantage of he good weather. On the harvesting days we picked a lot of corn, peas and beans. Then we cut and conserved them. In the garden there is also a pear tree, so we made a lot of jam (as well as banana jam and banana bread). On the rainy days some of us built traditional fences around the animals. Some time ago Bengt slaughterd two pigs and in the last week we had to take care of all the meat.
With our WWOOFer group we have had a great time so far. Sadly some of us have already left, we all miss Manuel who is back in Paris by now and today Ashleigh will take a long journey back to Australia. The rest of us will stay a little bit longer. Elin will continue to make everything out of bananas, Leo will search for more mushrooms and Marie will take a walk with her dog Teo.
This sunday was a special day, it was the election day in Sweden and we went together with the horses to Skärstad. It was also my birthday and I got a really good cake with self-made candles.
The last two weeks have gone by so quickly and I'm really looking forward to the next!
