when my batteries are charged again i'm gonna take some pictures of my garden stuff....its been so nice to eat collards and carrots and garlic and such....theres nothing like fresh garlic, so different than the dried out stuff from the store.Squash isn't quite there yet, but the plants are huge! i love squash, so easy to grow, the grasshoppers don't eat it and it grows with such unstoppable, satisfyingly enourmous audacity.
and the new closing date for the land is sept. 10th. i've decided to stop my search for something to buy and instead focus on getting out of here and into one of the handfull of temp. housing choices i have for winter....
a woman with ei, some sheep, goats and a horse, and 5 acres near santa fe has said i can come there for a spell.
my sheep yoda has said i can come there for a spell. she has a big herd of sheep, some milk goats, pyrenees dogs and a donkey.
theres an empty farm over the mountain needing a caretaker for the winter.theres 23 acres and a big house.
theres the huge organic farm where the llamas went to down south.
and my friends down the valley need a caretaker for their farm as well, also with a huge sheep herd, milk goats, chickens, alpacas,horses...you name it.
all of these choices allow for my own animal herd to come along which is grand.
i'm partial to the ei woman near santa fe as she is also near albuquerque....and thats where the poetry is....which i need like i need my heart to beat.
there is, ofcourse, ridiculous amounts of work to do to get out of here. and, testimony to why i'm leaving in the first place, i sure could use some helping hands, its too much for just little me.
beyond winter and spring...who knows. either something do-able will emerge here in new mexico or i'll pack up and head home to upstate new york..
now that would be something to write about, eh?
