From a lunch at my friend G's farm.
I can't believe that it has been more than two months since I posted on my blog or visited any of my favorite blogs! Well, many things have been happening here; I got sick then I was bitten by a tick and I had to take antibiotics for Lyme Disease. The antibiotics was so strong I felt that I was taking poison! The ironic thing is last day of the antibiotic course I found another tick stuck to the back of my knee! I was devastated but opted to not do anything. I might need to do a test to see if I've got Lyme or not; it is just I have to go to another city and I do not have a car, etc. This year we have an invasion of ticks; they are everywhere. Someone told me essential oil of Thyme helps with warding off the tick, so I have been using it.
Here are some of my other news in photos:
My vegetable plot is looking good, despite a nasty attack by moles and voles. I have been fighting them organically and will dedicate a whole post to that, so other gardener might benefit from it. I have planted about 50 tomato plants and many aubergines, cucumbers, peppers, chilies, potato, strawberry, lemon, pumpkin and more.
I also visited few small sleepy villages. If you want to see the beauty if Italy, you have to visit the small villages scattered around. Not big cities, like Rome, Florence, etc. Some of these tiny villages are magical.
This is the Republic of San Marino; it is one of the tiniest Republic in the world. It is so tiny and its population is tiny too but it is filthy rich because all the banks are there. I did not like at all; all expensive hotels and rich people sauntering around! During Christmas time many people go there for their shopping! It is about 2 hours drive from where I live.
Wish you all a great summer.
