Matricaria nest

When you’re – like we do – producing in a sustainable way, birds make nests in the greenhouse. We welcome them, because they eat away many insects, e.g. aphids. If we discover a nest during harvesting we move them to a safe – covered – place a few meters ahead. The parents will absolutely find them after moving, the young ones beep more than enough.

Ice bird

Talking about sustainability : Several “ice birds” are living along the water around our greenhouse. Beautiful birds which are known to be very sensitive for pollution of their natural habitat. This one hit the glass wall by accident and was sitting rather dizzy on the road next to the greenhouse. Made a quick picture and that was just in time. After about 10 seconds he was enough recovered of the clash and flew again.

To “Production start”.
