So, I was ecstatic to get out of City Limits and have the freedom to be as sustainable as possible. That pic in the upper left corner is what the local streets look like now that the City of Tucson has successfully annexed this area. So we are looking for a new homestead location once again. I will keep you posted on any new developments.
Aside from that new development, we have been plenty busy finishing up projects and starting new ones. We had invested in some Key Lime, Myers Lemon, Peach, Pear and Plum trees and held off planting them until the annexation issue was settled. I'm glad we waited as I would have only had to uproot the trees once a new place was found. To solve my planting dilemma, we made barrel planters by cutting 55 Gallon, Food Grade, Poly Barrels in half and giving them handles and a decorative rim made from poly rope.
Until next time be healthy and happy!
