climatic geophysical and soil condition on Ven
No photo description available. 


overview A brief overview of the climatic conditions on Ven, where our garden is located, in relation to other factors. Typically, our climatic classification falls between zone 6 - 8/9 on the USDA scale, primarily contingent upon the level of wind protection.
temperature During winter, temperatures remain relatively mild, fluctuating between -3 and +5 degrees. While there are occasional extended periods of cold lasting up to two weeks, wherein temperatures may drop continuously below zero, we also experience warmer spells above zero, which induces peach blossoms to emerge in February.

we tried to mitigate the warming and cooling by the method i have seen in Korea with poor results. We gave up growing peaches
Autumn   Autumn is characterized by mild temperatures, whereas spring can be rather harsh due to the influence of the adjacent sea.
Spring  Spring begins with chilly temperatures, but as the sun's intensity increases, objects, such as tree trunks, undergo a considerable warming during the day. However, during the night, temperatures cool down to approximately -2 to -3 degrees. Our recorded extreme low temperature was -11 degrees on a single night.
wind Two prominent features of our climate include strong winds and significant temperature fluctuations, particularly during spring when the sun's impact is particularly robust.
soil Regarding the soil composition, it is primarily classified as clay-based of the best quality, according to the  Swedish soil classification, albeit with a scarcity of humus and organic matter. The topsoil and subsoil layers encompass a mixture of clay and humus, with a depth ranging from 30 to 80 cm. Below lies a parent material, characterized by compact clay. I
Ground water  The ground water is a problematic areas. The slopes are generally 20-30 meters. In certain areas beneth clay there is a gravel what results that water seeps out to the sea. See the "leak" layer.

On the ohter side  in some locations there exist deeper indentations in the clay water is collected beneth what cause plants to wither unexpectedly due to the wetlogg condition, much to the astonishment of any diligent gardener.
percipitation The annual precipitation on Ven totals approximately 550 mm, distributed unevenly throughout the year with rainy summers, particularly in August, and dry, chilly springs.

water conditions  Spring is generally a drier season from March to May, with precipitation ranging from 20 to 40 mm. To counterbalance the sporadic water supply, we collect and reserve water. However, the lack of sufficient  conditions for  groundwater  exacerbates the situation. Due to the impermeability of clay, excessive water fails to penetrate, while prolonged dry periods result in insufficient water supply.
some temperature indicative plants  figs bear fruits in protected area, against a wall (although mature fruiting is impeded in open spaces)

we like very mature fruits and to protect them from insects we wrap them in a bag.

some measures we have taken to counteract adverse conditions. We  dug in approximately 50 cubic meter of organic material and covered with 1 m or earth.

we have excavate water reservoirs approximately 200 cubic meter

In some areas we have planted a dense vegetation what created a protected microclimate. We will continue this successful measures.
