Photos from the Greek Hovel - at last it is starting to take real shape

George the Architect has been in touch with an update on progress at the Greek Hovel and, as you can below, see there really has been progress. The rat room extension walls are underway and the new wing of the house which will double the floor space is now also starting to take shape. George says the door to the bat room is on its way and it will be habitable within two weeks. The rest of the hovel is still on track to be finished by September, after just 51 months!

The skies over the Hovel and Kambos look dark in these photos but I see that today it is 17 degrees and sunny in Kambos and tomorrow it hits 19 degrees. Later in the week there will be rain and it will dip to 14 degrees but still why on earth am I sitting here in Bristol at my laptop when I could be pruning olive trees in the Mani?

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel - making pear jam part 2: it's delicious

On Sunday night I completed part one of this task, leaving a bowl of peak chunks encrusted in sugar in the fridge. 24 hours later the sugar has disappeared and the pears, as you can see below, were drowning in their own – highly sweetened – juices. Next up, put them in a pan, bring to the boil then cook on a steady heat for 15 minutes. And then cool and decant into four jars for storage in a cold dark place. One jat has already been opened and I enkoyed some on my toast this morning and, at the risk of sounding conceited, it is fantastic!
