The first members of the team have arrived on Kastelorizo already. There is already a huge number of people there, hotels are bursting, astronomical equipment fills every available space. Well, that's what I've been told so far.

We leave tonight for Rhodes / Rodos. We sleep on the boat, then we cruise around Rhodes town for a day and then we set off for the island, arriving on Monday morning.

Silence until well into the first week of April.

Time to get ready for the boat.

Peppers swelling

Last week before we go. Far too much to do yet. Every possible angle is uncovered. Too much chaos in my mind and no chance to untangle all the tangled threads. The good news is that we have some pollinated ovaries, which are now swelling into little peppers.

We have pollen!

We have pollen - I did a bit of insect-work with a q-tip today... It's all getting very exciting in the pepper corner of the living room.
