About the Place
Squash-slash-pumpkin plants marching across the otherwise dry brown turf. I have 5 plants and they, unlike the tomatoes, are all thriving and producing flowers. I don't see any squash-slash-pumpkins being produced but you never know. They've done well every other year.
I finally got the bougainvillia-without-thorns into a pot. It is not supposed to grow very high so this pot should be a cosy home for it
The oregano bunch has dried out and is ready to be scrunched up and stored in a jar
The limoncello finally got finished too after 6 weeks of limon peels marinating in raki.
I made the sugar syrup and added it to the alcohol. It sort of took my breath away. I think the syrup needs adjusting. My recipe did say to start with a syrup of one cup of sugar to one cup of water and to adjust according to taste. More water will make it smoother and more sugar will obviously make it sweeter. It needs a bit of both.
