Summer has started with a bang. The temperatures are more like the middle of July and the sea temperature is much warmer than usual for the end of June - a perfect 24C in both the sea and the pool.
The first fig crop has been delicious and the cherry plums seem to have made a comeback after being very hard to find the past few years. Melons are in abundance and the summer tomatoes are starting. Right now it is a culinary delight!
Our lovely San Pupulju farmhouse in Gozo is receiving rave reviews from our guests.
Nothing better than sitting by (or preferably IN the pool) sipping your favourite drink and nibbling at something - be it healthy or piggish!
