Serious Business

 Buenas trades. The garden beds are still being worked on. In the first photo you can see Humberto is adding more bricks to the raised bed that will hold lettuce, spinach, chard, peas, onions, herbs, that sort of stuff.

Senor added some more bricks to the tomato bed below.
 The long bed in the background is the one we put in last year. Senor already has it planted with Minnesota corn and the drip system is hooked up  and ready to drip. I don't think the fourth bed, the cutting garden, will go in this year. That's okay, I am in no hurry. But I am looking forward to all those vegetables, especially the tomatoes which will come from the giant portal plant and the baby reds from last year.

Someone asked me, why do you want to mess with growing your own vegetables...........i said, because we can........................
I suppose that answer is decent enough.


The tropical storm, Lorena, whose name I misspelled previously gave us nothing yesterday but this afternoon looks very promising as the wind is picking up and the clouds are rolling down off Mt. Alamos and over Rancho Colorado.

The Pueblo has put up a new flag at the Mirador and I can see it from our portal. I used my telephoto for this shot, so the flag is not quite that close.!! I do not think it is a half mast flag. Instead I believe that is just as high as it goes.

Each morning now the Paulita schoolchildren (ages around twelve through fourteen) are practicing their bugles and drums, in preparation for the sixteenth, Independence Day. It will fall on a Monday so I imagine it will be a larger than usual celebration. It also comes after a pay day, the fifteenth. So, Fiesta time soon!

Corn and tomatoes, I DO know where you live now, so next fall might be time for a garden raid some dark night, as long as that donkey doesn't herald my approach lol.
How is that dear old donkey doing anyway, Roy just loved petting him.
