    All looking incredible – hard work as you say – especially with building roofs at the same time! How do you irrigate) I am so impressed – not a weed in sight!

  4. Hi “Food”
    there are plenty of weeds, trust me!!!
    i don't irrigate, I should as we currently have a small stream running through the land, but it is such a faff i just haven't got time to stand there and try and control the flow of water, the Portuguese are very good at it, but it only really works when you have a large flow of water. All the quintas are designed well to support irrigation in the portuguese way but it's very time consuming if you don't have much flow (which i don't), so i pump water from my bore hole into a holding tank above the garden and then use hoses. I would like to think that one day we will come up with a better system but as you see we are rather busy with building a house aswell and that is the priority at the moment
