Pete and Jan. Retired 18 years ago and moved to Le Marche, Italy for the peace and quiet of the countryside and more sunshine, where gardening became a challenge.  We now have a lovely garden with an eclectic selection of plants including many wild flowers of which we are found of.

As Umbrian said,  Oh dear.  The potato plants don't look very healthy.  I  am posting a photo of my nephew's Marrow.  It is as long as the width of his kitchen window.  For a non gardener he is doing well.  It will be used in the autumn to make 'kolokopites'.  Semi sweet pasties.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.
