Everyone needs some privacy, including dogs. Mia has two beds but no house. That is until now. We first bid on a ready-made dog house on Ricardo, the Swiss eBay, but didn’t win the bid.

Peas are purple roses are red arugula’s ample berries on a bed. Summer’s not here yet, but carrots heads emerge. Fennel cannot anticipate when peppers will beget. Tomato plants are green, kohlrabi or maybe a beet, orange fruit will be seen for all of us to eat. Enjoy the pictures and Happy Summer!

The Justin Vali Trio from Madagascar had a concert at El Lokal, a wonderful stage/bar/restaurant in downtown Zürich. Petra and I went to see/hear them play. We also danced to their music. They string their own hand-made instruments with bamboo and break cables from motorcycles and bicycles. Th young drummer is very talented as you […]
This morning around eight, a hail storm attacked Petra’s garden. I am sure that regional agriculture suffered. The bamboo we planted two weeks ago is fine. Watch the video and look at the photos.
