Indeed. I was / am surprised (for want of a better word) how satisfying and enjoyable the whole process was. I have never really been into 'gardening' before and left that to my partner, but the production of something tangible and useful and delicious has changed my outlook. I genuinely enjoyed the whole process and we are now in the process of educating ourselves as to how to prune and maintain the trees properly ready for the next cycle. It is a lot of hours and finding the time is always hard but it has been a revelation to me how enjoyable and satisfying it has all been.

Don't mention the C word to my partner! She has been 'agitating' for us to get some chickens for ages now. We already have a large menagerie of cats and dogs, 3 dogs and about 20+ cats, some with 3 legs, some with one eye, some with no eyes and some with all their limbs and eyes in tact.

Good idea. The boss of the company I work for has turned his home into what could only be called an 'animal sanctuary' and he has along with a multitude of other animals a rescued donkey.

Chickens are too messy... my grandparents had several of them. Personally I don't want to take care of plants and animals. I like nature either in its wild form or when somebody else takes cares of it! :P I don't care about "produce" either. If I had a garden I would prefer one with trees like pines or other trees that look nice and don't need much maintenance.... olive trees are kinda ugly!

You're seriously sick you misogynistic bigot. You're also a coward who couldn't take on B25 on an equal footing and had to resort to insulting a third party.

All told we harvested around 500 kilos and got around 100 litres of oil, which in my totally biased opinion is pretty fucking fantastic. Of course this is something that generations of Cypriots have been doing for time in memorial but for me it, a boy that was born and grew up in North London it was pretty special in so many ways. Here is an album I made of the experience.

I haven't been following all your in house petty name calling and childish insults.
I'm reluctant to judge anybody or question their Cypriotness.

A good measuring stick would be the amount of foreign bullsh** an individual pushes on CF.

The question is, how much Anatolian crap has Erolz been spouting on CYPRUS forum, if any?
The proof is in the pudding.
