In the final sprint of completing the houses we couldnt resist to steel some time and construct a vegetable garden in the back of the plot. One of the stone workers passed one sunday with his two wheeled little red traktor and helped us to prepare the ground. The next week we planted tomatoes, peppers, water melons, honey melons, parsley, eggplants and zuchinis. The earth seems to be good because it was resting for a lot of years without cultivation. We collected a lot of humus from beneath the oak trees and animal waste out of the old stables to enrich the soil with organic material and microorganisms.........the little stream beside the garden has still a lot of water due to the heavy rainfalls of the winter, so irrigation comes naturally for the time being.
