All along the watchtower

Cat on a hot tin roof


Two months since we moved down for season 2015! Lovely, sunny (yay!) two months. What happened at Pruga during that time? Food was prepared, including a new thing – sage flower cordial (beggining of the preparation above right). Very nice and already drank. Kinda like elderflower cordial (similar procedure for making), with a lovely hint of, well, sage. Must make lots more next year. Read More »

New season

Into the woodland

Into the woodland*

Winter has been very uneventful at Pruga, hence no posts for such a long time. There was not even the snow drama of last year. However, as spring sprung I spend days editing todo lists before our “transhumance” (word I just learned – “seasonal movement of people with their livestock between fixed summer and winter pastures”) this Sunday.

Remembrance of things autumn

Orange carrots

Orange carrots

As overcast is the norm here in Zagreb, plus some serious cold from yesterday morning, I decided it is time to finally write the last post of the season. It may look like a selection of fruit and vegetables photos – which it is of course. Read More »

Small digression from the usual Pruga topics. Autumn is, especially if you are trying to embrace country life, time for preserving food. I did quite a bit throughout the summer but there is this one thing, pretty important in the continental part of Croatia, that quite a few people make – ajvar. Read More »
