SKopelos

Farewell winter- spring has sprung!

Coming across this scene is definitely an indication that spring is on the way and a farewell to winter.


The load of olive prunings on the back of the mules will be fed to the goats. Nothing will be wasted! Those working the land of Skopelos are already busy pruning vineyards, fruit trees and tiling the land for planting seasonal crops.


For the forager, nature provides already an abundant, selective forage of delicious pot herbs and other green delicacies to supplement the diet of the nearing major fast: Lent.
