Today’s picture shows you my torture: waiting for the tomato seeds to do something. I got a couple of different breeds. I sewed one of them already, a “wild type from Peru”, supposed to give very small but very aromatic tomatoes. I was told that it can take up to 4 weeks to germinate. Thus, […]

a wow! morning

Good morning today, right from the factory. I was heading down here early in the morning to be up and ready for the glass fiber guys who want to install glass fibre. Not that I had asked for it: The fibre just comes and then it is up to us to decide whether we want […]

Here: Still super busy in the factory, filling packing, labelling. You name it! Hence, today’s picture: A quick selfie, taken early in the morning, with a somewhat determined look, like “Yes, I see you pile of work, but trust me: We’ll  get over there”.  A look that actually fits a lot of situations these days.
