The French connection

A July full of visits just past in Paliomylos and this time they came in big groups! Hétérotopies, a francogreco team that every summer makes a route through alternative projects with a ecological, social, cultural and political interest decided to stop in Paliomylos this year. The topic of the visit, making bricks from straw and clay. Thank you very much for the interest, for the help, for the positive energy, for the music and the good times.

the first experience with the brick-making though, happened a few days before, when a group of Belgian scouts visited Paliomylos and helped us for an afternoon, merci beaucoup !

In smaller scale now, but very efficiently and steadily there are so many things happening every day. Finally, 3 months after the harvest we faced the lentils !

we build a balcony/passage to the back of the house in order to have access to the workshop. The workshop goes on everyday and the photos will come all together later.


in the kitchen achievements, we have the addition of a very very spicy mustard sauce from the mustard seeds we picked earlier in spring.


and a second try to make cider. we hope for a better fermentation this time, especially after all this apple cutting and cleaning.

the garden keeps on providing more than what we can eat every day, so the excess is turned into sauce or given out to family and friends as a very small tribute to the amazing help and support they have provided so far.
