Gardening Ahead

Here's a recent picture of our Crete house courtesy of Richard Graves. It looks like our first week back there will be spent weeding!

How long until you go? You may not be able to find it by then. Take a machete!

go from southern italy botany to tropical carribean if you "let it go". keep the environment guessing OR there's your new roof creeping up the side.

End of the month, TJ (burglar warning: there's someone staying in our house here!)

I'm looking forward to it, Larry. Though I'll have to be careful to preserve everything that's been self sown, like chili and tomato plants and various flowers.

Vaude, looks nice and green now, but give it a couple of months and all that green is brown.

That gardener-drone of yours is really slacking Neal. Unless you reprogrammed it to produce Raki of course.

Larry said...

Self-sown tomato, now thats cool!!

Neal Asher said...

Xanares, the only drones they have there are Albanians (they get most of the labouring jobs). Raki in the house, waiting.

Everything grows like crazy there, Larry - their winter is mostly like our spring, though maybe a bit colder and wetter in the mountains where we are.

On the upside at least the weeds sequester Carbon from the atmosphere :-)

The pointing on the house looks really nice, sorry to go off topic.

Have a good summer btw.
