A bit of everything..!

A few days ago my beloved grandma who lives in Kedros, a village near Karditsa, sent us in Athens some vegetables from her own garden. So, as I was making a salad for today's meal, A had a brilliant idea about growing peppers from my grandma's seeds!

So he digged a bit, creating some space in our big pot and put the seeds in..

The remaining seeds, left for me, were placed in a different pot. Don't know if we'll see any growth  but it was fun!

After finishing the seeding, we went back to the kitchen to finish off the "greek salad". Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, feta, olive oil, salt and oregan! (We had lack of onions and olives)
                                 Ready for the shot!                                           Ready to eat!

And of course the main course, cooked by my sweet mummy, au gratin and homemade tzatziki! Both delicious!!

Now off to water my plants and then have some study about superconductivity's properties. If you wonder about that, take a look at this really impressing YT video, showing  Quantum Levitation.
Have a nice day,


  1. How wonderful to have fresh veggies from your grandma's garden. I just had a salad with tomato, cucumber, carrots, onion, chickpeas, feta, olive oil & balsamic. So yummy! I met friends for lunch yesterday and we were saying how we missed our Greek friend Maria and her tzaziki. She gave me her recipe but I haven't made it in years. Think I might have to do that very soon. Yum! Maria moved to Lebanon but she goes to her summer home in Greece during the summer where I visited her once. The year of the heat wave. Boy was it hot! You would think I would be used to the heat, but we could only use the a/c at night so stayed at the beach all day. Around here, we live with a/c probablhy 9 months out of the year.

    I will be curious to see if the green peppers grow. If they do, then I am definitely doing that this winter. :)

    You lost me with superconductivity! Ha! Have a great day. Tammy
