It’s been 4 months since we moved to a traditional house in the village, away from the polluted and noisy city of Limassol, and I’m thankful everyday that we made that change! It changed our life – where less is always more. Less neighbors – more peaceful! 🙂
I never have a thought that at last I will share something about the house in my own blog, not because I don’t want to share, but simply because I am so lazy lately to stay long in front of my laptop, ha! I got so much distracted here, since our office has a beautiful small veranda where you can sit and see the mountain, listening to the happy birds singing songs, watching the birds taking shower on the pipe above the office veranda, constant tranquility, peaceful, breezy, kittens jumping around your leg – tell me how can I work here? 😀
Anyway, one of my passion is growing bigger here, since we have an abundant space to plant vegetables, herbs and trees. I took a lot of pictures before when we started to “fix” the garden. It used to be more weeds than useful food sources. Then, we planted a lot of vegetables and herbs. Practically, started middle of August, we are eating from the garden. We have our fresh tomato until now, lettuce, bell pepper, chili pepper, parsley, red lettuce, spring onion, rucola, and many more. We used to have corn, cucumber, melon, beans. It’s really good to know that you can grow and eat food from your garden. You know what you plant, no pesticides, no chemicals, all seeds are coming from the traditional local farmers.
We also have various of herbs – lavender, louiza tea leaf, lemon balm, basil, oregano, bay leafs, rosemary. Everything just beautiful, thinking that you have a garden where you can pick up some fresh leaves for your tea or ingredients for your dishes. It’s amazing feeling!
More to come, I did some research on the plants that I have in the garden, and soon I would like to share it with you. It’s good to know what you have in your garden! 🙂
Happy gardening! 🙂
