I mentioned in my last post that we had some different visitors to the plaza. We get people arriving in their cars to see what is in the ermita, we also get groups of walkers who use it as a lunch spot to take a break from their mountain trek.Some weekends we get families that come up to meet and let the kids play. This time it was a group of four legged friends. I was first alerted by hearing bells jingling then stomping, looking out this is what I saw
Bygone age, it seemed a nice tranquil way of seeing the mountain though I did feel sorry for the poor horses having to pull the wagons in the heat (it was about 35C).
They all left after having their lunch and made their way down the mountain road. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to be behind them going down as there are very few passing places and it certainly would have been difficult with the number of them. Just hope they didn't meet any water lorries on the way.
A couple of weeks ago I managed to buy some sweet potatoes, I like to use them in veg thai curries or veg pate with lentils, or even just roasting them, anyway, a noticed on of them had little sprouts on the top, so I cut it off and placed it in some water. Well this is how they have grown
What now? I have grown potatoes before, but not these. So onto google, seemed straight forward, but the advice said to remove the sprouts and replant. Now my green fingered friends, surely that means with a slice of the original potato, not just breaking the sprout off? Any ideas?
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and doing lots of things that please you
