Now I watch

Time goes by, seasons do their cycle and my plants grow;
I keep observing their behaviour with critical eye noticing the influence that soil and climate have on it: In Gallura (Sardynia north east) we have loose soils given by the granites of the area therefore sub acid, some concentrated rains in autumn and spring and drought, severe at times for the rest of the year.
It was allready the end of 2002 and further ahead lied the coldest winter of the past twenty years. It was severe, minimum temperatures dropped below zero for ten days in a row, the aerial part of the plants became a straw wig, I tought I lost them..On the other hand but, if they are not suited to the purpouse, better to know straight away.
I keep listening
