The extreme heat forces the skin to burst and it's easy to peel the remaining bits.
We've been living in the organic farm
for about 2 weeks now. I'm sure everybody wants to know how two IT programmers cope with the day to day activities. Well, the good news is that we're doing fine and our hosts (Cherif, Djahida and the children) are very nice.
Daily activities can be a bit random. Here is a list of things we did in no specific order:
• Picking up tomatoes (red, yellow and black)
• Chopping wood in the forest
• Helping with the usual house tasks
• Applying some oil to an old wooden furniture
• Jullietta went to help selling products at the market (she loved it)
• Pick up chesnuts (Jullietta must be the equivalent of a black belt by now)
• Picking up Tetragone (my vertebrae are still sore)
• Spead (organic) products to kill slugs and other dangerous salad predators
• Removing herb and dead wood in some areas and making big fires 😊
• Cleaning up stables (did we tell you that sheep are like poo machines...)
• Printing and sticking label to apple juice bottles
• Extracting seeds from dried string beans
• Peeling chesnuts (they made the best chestnut
Yes, that's what you think it is (about 2 tons)
The deal is that we (try to) help them with their work and they let use live at their place. We usually have meals together, it' very friendly. Check out wwoof France
if you are interested by this alternative way of travelling.
We are very happy with our first wwoof experience and I think we'll keep looking for similar farms around the world.
We'll be leaving toworrow and we'll try hitchhike to Montpellier (100km) and then Sete where we'll take a ferry to Morocco 😊
