Then and Now
Comparison shopping: the day I first met the hacienda in October 2018 and #6thavenueshala this week.
The south facing front and south western side (there’s an enclosed backyard too).
Would you buy this house?
Even the realtor tried to dissuade me on that day in 2018 (well the inside of the 1940 built structure was a mess too) but I knew this little piece of northern Chihuahuan desert could shelter and feed me.
Today I have around 75-80 % of the yard cultivated and producing food and a healthy environment for me and local wildlife: birds, insects, reptiles and small mammals. The water bowls throughout the property not only provide for birds and neighbourhood cats but have also been known to attract foxes and coyote.
