dare i say it and fall is here

i feel for the first time since this crazy journey of selling the farm began, that i just might know where i'm going for the near future anyway. While i was in santa fe , a freind and i drove out to see this womans farm down south a bit on the pecos river. its a village amongst a string tiny farming villages on the pecos river about an hour east of santa fe. An interesting place, getting there you are driving driving through this vast expanse of space, mesas, red and purple sandy soil, huge rock ridges....very new mexico high desert. Then the road gets a little windy and you come over a little hill and suddenly you're in a very green and well populated farming village on the pecos with big fat acequias running through , huge cottonwoods and endless old adobes and rock houses.
anyway, this woman has 60 some acres, it used to be a csa organic farm but nowadays not much is happening with it.She seems motivated to change that.
i'll be in the little caretakeres house which is really an old 70's trailer thats been sided with firstcut, has a porch built on and is drywalled inside.
its disguised.
but it has all amenties, a washer, a full kitchen.
plus i'll have the airstream just for extra space and guests...hint hint.

we're still workin' out the kinks...mostly to do with the current caretaker leaving and trying to figure safer/better housing for all the animals.
i can bring my whole herd so thats great.
she has there 2 horses, my llamas of yesteryear and 2 cows.

its more around 6000ft, so i'll be a bit warmer.

in the here and now, the mountains are doing that delicious fall color seduction....mmmm.
