Hi Tiago, you seem to know what there is to know.
The wind/salt protection is crucial but like you said, there are not a lot of trêes só close to the ocean. The Quick responde is Pinus, but they grow very slowly, and cana, Which in a small área like yours can divert the wind to the neighbours lol.
Where exatly is it?
It would Be nice if you could share your experiênces through time as yours is an uncommon situation for a site.
Laura, im too in Castelo Branco área and generalizing, as i dont know anything about your place, forget subtropical plantas.
The ones you said, again generalizing, grape vines, olives, figs, are the best chance you have. Even more so if you'll Be away for long períods of time.
Hi Guys, i have ten 270w solar panels that feed a borehole pump and now want to use the solar panels to also feed the house. Is it doable? The guy that installed the system said that the panels cannot be linked to both places, Is it true?
well, two years ago i experimented 42 ºC in the south of Portugal and the feeling was horrible (dificulty to breath similar when it is too cold) but this time it has not been that hard even though we are having +40 ºC for several days now. There is a dust cloud coming from Africa so the sun is not that strong.
Well, for us the problem is the amount of sweat we produce, at 08 am i am sweating like crazy even with no efforts being made. The animals sleep all day almost. The plants (vegetables) are suffering a lot of course and like the other guy said, shade is necessary.
