18 Months Restoring Our Portuguese Quinta - The Story So Far - #1

    A lot has happened over the last 18 months here on our small quinta in Central Portugal. From clearing the land to starting a small veg garden to renovating the farmhouse.
    Of course, the story of this place goes back much further than 18 months. Before we bought it in October 2020 no one had lived here for almost 20 years.
    In this video we’ll travel back in time and give you a brief history of the house and the family that built it as well as showing you what we’ve accomplished in the short time that we’ve called this place home.
    If *you* would like to make, do and grow your way to a more sustainable life, join our community in the MAKE. DO. GROW. Club

Finding you again is like reading a really good book, losing it then finding it a month later. So happy to see you have returned to share your journey. Real life is mush more interesting than scripted pretend drama.

It's wonderful to see how much you've achieved indoors and outdoors. I think you really chose an absolutely wonderful plot of land. The shape and the location, the fertility, the neighbourhood, its history, all mark it out as something really special. And that's before you even started making your mark on it. Seeing all the drone shots today made clear just how much progress you've made in this short time.

I lived in Portugal for 5 months. And I am still thinking my days back there everyday. I am so in love with the country and its nature. The small villages gave me some weird peace I've never felt. My future goal is also moving there and living eventually. I hope you have the most wonderful times of your lives there..

What a beautiful story ☺️☺️☺️. I moved to Portugal in June 2019, not to a quinta, to the city. But my dad uses his garden as a quinta 😁 and my daughter loves feeding the chickens and getting eggs, picking ripe strawberries and oranges, kiwis, lettuce, tomato and mint. I don't have a green thumb, but I appreciate my parents home for all the lovely things that it provides. My dad's siblings live close by and they have different fruit trees in their gardens, so quite often the door bell rings and someone will drop off a big bag of what ever is in season ☺️☺️☺️☺️. I look forward to seeing what you do with your quinta, and your pronunciation of Portuguese words is very good 👍😁👏👏👏👏👏

You should see me watching this video, shaking my head in admiration at you, guys. Congratulations on all you do! I mean, I grew up in the countryside, took up engineering to escape that way of life, you know, all hard work and sweat, then coming back full circle and now having a house in a village with a small garden, trees, a greenhouse and growing my own food. But you guys are from another league :) Truly inspiring.
