We have made good progress on the land and it’s meant Rick can start doing some of the other jobs that aren’t so pressing. The olive grove is looking good, but there is more of it that had become completely inaccessible and as we want to harvest as many olives as possible Rick decided that he should thrash back some of the growth now to give the trees a chance to fruit for the next season. This is what the terrace looked like before and now, still needs a bit of work, we’ll get there.
welcomethis is a blog about two people making as much of their life as they can by hand on 15th October, 600 forest fires and hurricane Ophelia, ravaged 1 million acres of land, incinerated houses (along with ours) and took many lives, destroying forests and wildlife, infrastructure and livelihoods We are currently looking for new land to build again, in a different way but still by hand......keep checking in and send us messages, your continued support means a lot to both of us
