A House Called Nut
This blog is about the adventures of three urbanites (one American, one
Finn, one dog of no fixed nationality) displaced to the Finnish
countryside. In December 2008, we took up residence in Pähkinä (Finnish
for “nut”) after a little joke about moving into our friend’s pretty,
yellow cottage suddenly became a reality. If years of London living
made our previous move to Helsinki seem like walking through a
revolving door into a pasture of cows, what will become of this little
walk in the woods?
Join us as we explore the nature around us,
attempt to grow our own vegetables on a steep, rocky hill in a northern
climate, compost all our organic waste, go foraging for
mushrooms, berries and other wild foods in the Finnish forest, bake
pies, and knit our own socks.
