Our Little Thing - Creating A Sustainable Lifestyle In Patagonia

Creación de un estilo de vida sostenible en Patagonia  パタゴニアでサステイナブルな暮らし作り

It's taken some time, but the turf wall I've been building almost completely surrounds the house and gardens. I just need to make a couple of gates and we'll be able to get the ducks. I have already begun planting local bushes, Chilco, that have lovely red and purple flowers, on top of the new wall. This should look very beautiful.

The photo #2 shows the new terraces I've created while getting the turf for the wall. We'll plant them more extensively next year. Happy to note that Hares seem to love our grass so much that none have eaten any of the veggies growing outside the walled garden.

This is where I like to sit after a hard days digging.

"mid teens" would be referring to celcius, I take it?

It's been unusually sunny and warm all summer and spring. Gorgeous with little rainfall, although now it's getting cooler around mid teens during day cooler at night.

What a beautiful day!  What's the average termperature at La Junta these days?  Is it raining a lot?
