About Me

We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

Processionary Caterpillars

The lovely warm weather returned after a couple of days rain, but has brought with it bloody nasty caterpillars, they are so dangerous to our dogs, and to us if we touch them, we've set fire to 5 lots in 10 days now, its the only way to safely destroy them. We keep medicine in the house especially labeled with exact dosage for each dog just in case, lucky we do as a couple of years ago, if we hadnt had the pills my lovely Bonny would have died.

We've continued on with the planting, 200 onions, loads of green beans, french beans, coriander, and parsley.
The spuds are showing through the ground already as are the peas and beetroot....

Its all go.
