What are the predominate tree species in your area? Looks like more deciduous trees than I thought would be in Norway. I guess southern Norway is fairly mild though.

Oak and birch, how ever its been planted diferente types of pines
because they are faster growers.
I'm in to walnut, right now.
They are not common but they do fine, and the moose and deers
leave them alone.

Not sure what the common name in Europe would be, but I am guessing the walnut you're growing would be what we call English or White Walnut?

The trees is a Canadian type, I got from UK.
The link shows the diferente available to me here.

How ever I'm trying to grow some from nuts, and the mother tree from those is probably black walnut.
It was planted by a sailor(seaman) in 1890-1900, and he brought it back from the US.

I'w been strugeling a bit the last few years, for two reasons.
I got biten by a tick, that has given me all sorts of health problems, so progres is slow from my point of view.
Then we (Norway)has adopted/ratified the EC Water directive,

http://www.fwr.org/environw/frg0001.htm

wich means there is a new regime of rules I have to comply with.
I am in general happy that there is strict rules, problem is more
the lack off guidence, from public offices, they don't now the rules yet.
I can get 100% public funding on my project with these new rules,
but then they are in charge, and I don't want that, at least not yet or for the time being
I like to be my own manager, on my own land.

andedammen, whats that maroon metal thing in the photo that looks like a Mercury space capsule, is it a cooker of some kind?

BEWARE when the Government says we're here to help, they usually mean to help themselves. ;\)

If it is a space capsule, keep Cody away from it if he ever comes to Norway.

Wow, not very many people own an Excavator. If you don't mind me asking, what do you do for a living Andedammen.

The space capsule is originaly a garbeage burner.
It,s now converted to a smoke'r for warm smoking fish/meat,
I'll be happy to converte it again if someone else do the flying.

I'm a HSE-Instructor Used to woork offshore as a safety officer, but thats 20 years agoe.

Well its not needed to have a excavtor they can be mounted on a tractor as well. thats more common here in Norway also.
I bought a exscavator because I do all the woork my self, so it was cheaper to buy a used one than renting one in the long run.
A fairly good used comes at around $15-20K.
To rent one for all my differente projects would cost much more.

Very neat and beautiful place. Otto, pack your bags and lets go see. Wait a minute, let's wait until it warms up.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Agust - september best months to visit Norway.
Weather is stable, still fishing season, hunting seasen started.
And prices have dropd,do to the common vacation/holiday season is over, but most seasonal turist/recreational atractiones are stil open to the public.
May - June have a litle bit of the same,but no hunting and salmon/throut season starts at 15.june, so thats only 14 days.
Sun peeks 23/24 June, so for the midnightsun experience those are the 2 weeks to pay Norway a visit.
July is crowded most Norwegians including schools are on wacatione,prices are awfull, and nothing is vacante.

Hey, at this time of year I would have to go buy a coat. Don't know whatever happened to the one I had.
