A happy reunion

This July, we planted seeds on 1000 meters in the mountains, well above their current growing limits.

Now, at the end of August, we were very curious to see if they managed to germinate. It was an exciting hike to the top, our thoughts switching between ‘oh no,everything will be dead!’ and ‘this gonna be so good!’

Luckily the worries did not distract us too much from our environment, so we did not miss the amazing waterfall on our way to the top.

In the end, everything turned out perfect. The plants did as we expected, with some strong individuals even growing amazingly swift for these high elevations. It was a happy reunion with the plots we left behind in the beginning of the summer. Soon we had to leave them again however, and now for the cold and dark winter nights. Growing plants

Our nice preparation at home ànd our good fieldwork in July made sure all our work now went as smoothly as could be. Good news, because it gave us time to hike up to the top of the mountain, were rumours said delicious waffles were served.

It took us a little bit more time than expected to hike to the top, but the waffle house was found, at the end of a beautiful walk through a wild landscape.

The waffles were well earned, and tasted even better after the long climb and the succesfull fieldwork of the day. DSC_0170More on our research here!
