The subtropical climate of the Azores is just perfect, almost everything grows here, except for fruits which need frost. We have fresh veggies and herbs the whole year around, also in winter there is a great variety, like different kinds of cabbages, salads, carrots, and things from the onion family grow very well. Also many fruits like Anonas (Cheremoya), Araçás and Loquat (Nesperes) are ripe in Winter and early spring.
Jan was really ambitious to make a big start now in our garden, with a large variety. His bad leg injury was not holding him back at all (typical Virgo I guess, but I just have to say that I have rarely met a man who is so positive and loyal to his mission and dreams, against all odds).
