Re: Farmers' union rails against overuse of pesticides

Re: Farmers' union rails against overuse of pesticides

The overuse not only of pesticides, but also hormones, antibiotics etc is unchanged since decades here in Cyprus. So, as more healthy you try to eat with local produced vegetables or fruits, as more you have the chance to absorb things which are not good for your body. What I suggest is to avoid hu...

Re: Elon Musk second richest person now, plans worlds biggest..

Good luck to him, with the economical climate around the world due to Covid, people are less likely to buy his overpriced cars. It looks like even with the Covid problem he will earn good money as the same article mentioned his other interests in Germany.. "Musk has several other interests in Germa...

Re: English Lavender and Hibiscus

I would try it at the London Garden Center, Polis Road. I bought my plants in the past 30 years or so from them...

Both you can plant in Jan/Feb and mind: not too much water for the lavender bush, now and in future.

That third one looks nasty.
Unfortunately I missed a lot of really nice lightnings due to the fact that between every photo is a 30 second pause the camera needs to develop the last shot and exactly in this time the best flashes happened... :roll:

Yesterday afternoon: 4 hours unexpected rain..

Yesterday's afternoon rain, (in my area) from 1PM to 5 PM, was the first one this autumn you could measure. 13.5 mm/m2, steady rain without wind or thunder or hail... perfect for nature. Can't remember if there was any rain forecast for the Paphos area.

Re: After a long time... delicious Red Mullet

Yes. Red Mullet is delicious, but even better if the fish were allowed to grow bigger before they are taken from the sea. Dee I disagree, You can ask any Cypriot which size a Red Mullet (Barbouni) is tastier. The smaller they are, so much the better. A normal portion is between six and ten pieces. ...
