Juncus Preparation

Published by at 9:05 pm under Expeditions and Experiences

Today I have been preparing some of the juncus stems I gathered for later using them in coiled baskets. Coiled baskets were traditionally not used in this area, but I want to experiment a little with it to see if this skill has any value for me.

As a sidenote, for the first time since 1994 the lemmings are abounding here. They are all over the place and their numbers will take the predator strain off the other small game species for a year or so until they disappear again. This used to be a regular occurence every four years or so, but of reasons unknown they have been gone for a long while. Mice also seem to be exceptionally numerous this year.
