Have We Bitten Off More Than We Can Chew?

After going to the beach this morning ( see post below..)
we were given the key to our new kypos (key-pos)
Our neighbours Dimitris and Thalia live in Athens and come back to their family home for holidays so do not use their garden.They said we could use it, it means we don't have to go back and to to Limnes to do the watering etc.
Do you think we've bitten off more than we can chew, considering everyone else is planting their seedlings out???
It's surrounded by orange, lemon and pomegranite trees. There's a well for water. And it can be locked too which is good.
I'll let you know how we get on.....
I'm sure we brought 2 dogs down here with us........

I certainly think you've got your work cut out!

Wow - you're ambitious! What will you grow? We're pretty excited at the thought of getting deer fencing completed this year so that we can grow some flowers and veg.
Beautiful beach post, by the way. If I get to Greece, I'll definitly seek advice!

What beautiful scenery you're surrounded by, and it sounds as if the weather is at its best just now. Your new project is certainly going to be a challenge, it will be fun to see how you progress.

This is an unfulfilled dream of mine. I'd love to have a place to grow some vegetables. The place looks so beautiful.

You can feast on oranges, lemons and pomegranites if all else fails.
Beautiful location, good luck.

Good gracious! The next time I complain about Mr Grigg's plot, I will hold my tongue and think of yours!
