It has been a cloudy but warm day today. The sky was dark grey when I drove home from work and the closer I got the darker the sky got. The first drops of rain started to fall when I drove in to the village. Now it´s pouring down outside.
Nothing ever works as it should at work when we come back after vacation. But this time most things broke down the week before when my boss was there to do some things. We´re only two persons at my departement nowdays so we had to borrow people from other places in the factory and that never is good since they don´t know how to work in the right way. But we also has a young man that has worked in the factory this summer and he is a life saver :-)
Rodnande fjällskivling or in english Shaggy parasoll. Some that eats this mushroom gets sick others don´t. I like it as a mushroom to mix with other mushrooms.
Even though he only will stay this week he is curious and willing to learn new things and he works really hard. He makes me look much lazier than I really am :-) :-) Since I usually am tied to my painting machine much of the time he could take much of the work my boss usually does (he is still on vacation You see). So if this young man hadn´t been here this week my job would have been much tougher.
Two kinds of Finger mushrooms. The yellow is unedible and the one below is edible (but it doesn´t taste that great to be honest.
There is an old crabapple tree groing just beside my dogyard and it must be over one hundred yars old. It´s so old that it doesn´t have the strength to flower every year but this year it did and very much too. So now every branch is full of small apples. So many that the weight of them got to much for the poor old tree. I did think one big branch were a bit to low yesterday morning when I went to work and I was right. It is as thick as my thigh and had broken and some of it had hit the fence to the dogyard.
So yesterday evening I brought an old saw and started cutting those parts from the fence. It´s not that big damage to the fence but it is no use fixing it until we´ve taken away all of it from the tree, because it´s still attached to the branch in question. So we´re planning on using a tractor, a saw (maybee my electric chainsaw) to get it down now on Saturday. My neighbors telephone lines is in the danger zone so we will all work together to bring down the branch as painless as possible :-) :-) I hope I can take some photos of us working (but I´m not sure the others will allow it though :-) :-) )
The old tree doesn´t have many more years I´m afraid. There are big cracks in all bigger branches and funguses has attacked it for years now.
The damages could have been much worse after all.
I feel that it´s time for a cup of tea now and then some blog reading.
Have a great day now!
