We live close by too, in Prilep in Macedonia. We got back here in February after being in the UK to have our latest little one, so this was the first year we were here properly doing it. We've got 2 acres of land consisting of mixed fruit and nut trees and an acre field. Don't have animals yet, apart from the dog, we were ready for the chickens but didn't get the chicks we were looking for and it was a bit chaotic in the orchard trying to harvest everything so the chickens got put off. Maybe in the spring.
It's been really mild here so far, we had a really hot and long summer and it's only snowed a couple of day in the beginning of December when is got down to -17 at night for a week or so. Now it's all melted ard really mild again. We were walking the dog on new years eve just up from our land and it's lovely and sunny again
