I have 3 rabbits in my city apartment this moment. Meat rabbits, no pet rabbits. Well… I hope that they will be meat rabbits and no pet rabbits.
I will take them in plot after 2 days and I hope the big one is already pregnant. They are not some particular type of rabbit, we call them local rabbits.
I must make space for the rabbits in plot. And for chickens also. We never had farm animals in plot so we must start from the beginning.
All these days I watch all the time YouTube videos about the chicken/rabbit killing process. I am not sure I will do it some day but I must do it because I want them for food.
When I was in plot in April I try to measure my vegetable garden and make a plan because I wanted to know how many digged empty space I have for my other vegetables and try to figure where I will plant them.
I make some symbols for the plants I already transplant in April and after that I measure that I have dug about 115 m². This is something like 1237 ft².

We are in our property these days and we try to pruning the olive trees. I said “trying” because the weather is not so good with rain most of the time.
March was rainy and cloudy and most people around have a problem with olive trees pruning. Usually we are the last in pruning because we live far from here but this time I think we are from the first people. Some times we hear the noise of chain saw and see smoke around but not so often.

I am writing this as the sun rises early in the morning. Sun… well we have sun the last 2 days but the March was cloudy with rain. I was waiting 12 days to see the sun because we had a very big cloud in the Greek sky.
And when the big cloud gone…. I check the weather forecast and the sky was clean with sunny warm days. And I decide that it’s time to go to my farm/plot/whatever (well until now I don’t know which is the right english word )
So… I will go there on Monday and now I try to prepare anything I need to take with me. I also talk in phone with one man who has tractor because I want him to plough my land.
But…. the weather forecast change today…
Rain and clouds come again from Italy….
This is not good. I want to plough the land and prune my trees and plant my potatoes and onions. I have months to go there and I have no idea if we have windows anymore because winter is a difficult season with many thieves or poor illegal immigrants around.
Except that my tomato seedlings here die day after day without sun. I sow again most of them and I hope to save some seedlings for early plant.
As I was said before we work in plot by hand traditional tools only. This is not easy because the plot is big and the weeds many every year. Usually we can’t clean all the area by hands so we clean only a small area around the vegetable garden and house.
We don’t have electricity in plot so the only power tools we can buy are the tools which work with gasoline. Usually these tools are more expensive than the tools which work with electricity. (Ehmmmmm and gasoline is not so cheap in Greece anymore, I think we have the most expensive gasoline in Europe now)
