Sorry there is no picture of our lettuce but we have eaten it all. We also have a hungry tortoise who just loves lettuce.

All the shaws of the potatoes are dying back now so its time to lift them. Got to go and get some sacks  to put them all in.

I remember when I was young we lived on a farm and I used to help the tattie pickers pick their tatties. Then when I got older going picking myself and getting paid. I remember picking potatoes for a month solid. At first all my muscles ached but by the end of the month I was fine. Ah! the good old days.

Hi Judith, I remember potato picking ,the school used to take us I wore my blue siren suit and wellies.we took our own sarnies and the farmers wife used to bring a bucket of tea at the break . If it was foggy the bus would turn back ,no potatoes picked .

I think you have an idylic life in Crete .You ask how I met my Greek Cypriot husband , we worked together at a hotel,he died 5 yrs ago . Yes we did live in Cyprus at one time .I love the Med ,. way of life---cottonreel
