Now we have an Aloe Vera garden too, thanks to someone tossing tons of aloe plants out into the road in town, which we happily scooped up and took home. The start of a medicine plant bed?
The leftover floor boards from our cabin became little tables for our cross-legged dining experience-- inspiration from or friends inThailand.
And of course there are lots of delicious things coming out of our kitchen, like crepes and empanadas, all homemeade of course!
Update on the animals: Lulu and Amanita are happy and in love with Rambo, who is perking up after his summer depression, and even wags his stub of a tail in the early morning. Paloma is still giving us plenty of milk, and Suki the calf is big and strong and showing little nubby horns. The chickens, well they give us an egg or two every so often (even though we gave them that luxury coop not too long ago-- stingy little critters.)
Just for the curious: this is how we are keeping ourselves warm in our cabin this winter. Here, this stove is called a salamander, which blends perfectly into our rustic little house.
Flor de Mayo... the beautiful blooming May flower was given to us by a lovely little old lady with an inspiring garden and orchard, in which she produces all of her own food and then some on a 1 hectare plot of land. And she even has room for flowers!
