Raddish, Mustard, Lupines, Phacelia and a super high diversity insect friendly flower and grass mix.

The concept is to use these plants to enhance soil content and structure. Esp the raddish, daikon winter seed, promises to increase soil organic matter and deepen the aerobic layer.

I try to follow the ideas of P.A. Yeoman's book "Water for every farm" and Marc Shepard's "Restoration Agriculture"

I try to attract biology: insects, esp beetles, plus worms and microorganisms with a high diversity of plants and carbon sequestration from the air into strong and deep raddish roots not for a harvest but for letting them rot to feed soil organisms.

I am insecure when it comes to the amount of seeds I used and the amount of woody parts in the mulch. Are these sticks OK or are they to coarse?

I guess the seeds are just covered by topsoil, roughly between one and four centimeters. My fear ist more that the mulch might prevent sun from helping the plants with their first steps.

Indeed, if in doubt give it a proper rake thru.

The streets of Oslo are flooded with big Tesla cars ... however, nearly all of them in drab black, dark grey or navy blue hues.

The main Tesla repair facility is situated next to my photo dealer's, so naturally I have a quick peek inside ... Same drab colour scale on the cars there, too. I thought electric cars should be all fun, but apparently I'm mistaken?

No my dear Birna, you’re not mistaken! In fact the Alexander / Kalashnikov factory are now producing really cool AND colourful (I write in English not American, that’s why the u in colour...) retro kind of looking electric vehicles 🏎🚙🚗💨💨  🚓🚨🛶🤦🏻‍♂️...

And perhaps you can order a special designed one, where the front lights flips around and out comes a AK-47 on each side, or a couple of Z7’s will perhaps be more like able?? On the right side a Z7 with a wide angle and a Z7 with the new Noct on the left side... Or...maybe not...🤦🏻‍♂️😉😊😊

Looks like a ginseng root (Panax ginseng).

Nice pullover, Frank.  Did you lose some weight?  You look healthier.
