The fourth week of April is the time to start feeding your vegetables, roses and flower beds, because plants that you want to produce need energy now.

We recently hosted a visit by a delegation from Chefchaouen. The mayor and his wife, plus Council members who consisted of a doctor, teacher and a lawyer rounded out the delegation.
