Hello everyone! Here's a quick greeting from Sweden. :iconbiggrin:

Markus is my name, married to my wonderful wife, Jessica (who is a cake specialist!)
(4 kids in the age 6, 4, 2, and the little one is 5month!)

We lived completely unpowered (Off-Grid), but after some circumstances we now live in an apartment!
But we still got our cottage and are there almost everyday (and all the time we get some freetime!)

We had horses, sheep, goats, chickens and more = now we have 2 dogs and a cat.

Grows most tomatoes this year, and the balcony is full! (And our neighbours are jealous! :wink: )

AND: Sorry for my english, I hope u understand!

Welcome, Mr Carrot!!
I took my dog to play frisbee. She was useless. I think I need a flatter dog.

Thank's everybody!

Well, tomatoes are easy to grow, they only need some love - and water.

Hi there and welcome :wave:

And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free

It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
