Locals was invited for the coffee in the garden
The annual meeting was this year on the island Samsø. Ingrid, Lila and others had planned a wonderfull week-end. We have a tradition for visiting a lot of interesting places during our annual meetings.
Brian Krause has a post in danish on the meeting.
I mostly post pictures.
Annette Mørch tells us about her Dexter cattle and the sheeps. She run an ecologic farm
Ingrid has a passion for tomatoes, here German Striped and Brandywine
Ingrid presents the museumgarden she tends
I was surprised to find Virginia tobacco and hemp in the museum garden – it’s a hemp for rope, no use trying to smoke it! Both are old culture plants on Samsø island
Homestead Fredensdal is part of Samsø Ecomuseum
“Den jydske hest” called Herkules is an old danish breed
Fredensdal is one of a very few places to meet the old danish breed “sortbroget dansk landrace svin”. Wonderfull pet pigs
Gute sheeps are the most important employees in the islands department for environment
The sheeps takes care of a beautiful landscape
Both ducks and people live in cosy houses in village Nordby, who would guess they have a solar heat plant?

After a long week-end with long walks, legs had grown somewhat long. Nice to spend hours on the ferry home remembering the good time
