Loving Kouvasi Crete

Slowing down to the greek pace

sunny 84 °F

As days pass we watch the seedlings that we have started slowly sprouting. We have started some heriloom argula seeds that we harvested from the garden. I am anxious to get my capers fermenting... apparently all the parts of the caper plant are available to eat. It is a long process of harvesting and then soaking and then lacto fermenting in salt... If only capers would grow wild everywhere...
We planted some potatoes in the garden this morning. This evening when it cools down a bit we will go and harvest some herbs. Serene the girl who is hosting us makes amazing teas, salves and well anything you can think of that uses amazing home grown herbs... I am so inspired being away from the big island. I feel like the world is my oyster right now and that we can literally do anything! It is so refreshing to no be dealing with the stress of the lava and I am thankful that our home is so far so good. Its hard not to want to check constantly what is happening but I keep reminding myself to be present where I am and thankful for the blessing of being here and these amazing experiences we are having!
The family hosting us is so thoughtful and constantly bringing us more food and produce! We are so looked after! They are going to come stay with us this weekend and that will be nice to have a bit of direction cause at this point we are on our own on the farm and we tend to make our way down to the beach while it is super hot! And working hard isn't the main thing going on... I am trying to create more projects cause I enjoy being busy on the farm... its definatly getting hotter and hotter each day... I am glad we came in May and got to feel a minute of Spring cause omg once summer is offically here... it is going to be super hot!
