Yep, one more, I was sitting here thinking I could share what it looks like to sit here. And the sun had shown its face.

Please will you tell me what you do about water - I read that you haven't got running water. Have you got a well? If so, what about in the winter - does it freeze?

And it looks really lovely, gorgeous trees you have.

I water in summer from a rain catch off the roof that I do have to fill manually now and then. Plants love the tepid water. No well, I bring water from town in 5 gallon containers for inside and out. It would freeze. We get -50 F a few times each winter. I can collect from a year round spring about 7 miles down the road as well. That is -cold- water. Real cabin life here. I feel like aquarius now and then, realizing half the day was carrying and pouring water....lol.

Very heavy work for you Gthumb, are you on your own here? Are the neighbours nearby and how far away is your town?

I'm on my own here, but it is a neighborhood, just large lots. I share my driveway with another house. Town is only 6 miles. There's horse people behind me, I'll try to snap a pic when their geese invade..lol. Something about the hand watering really fulfills me.

Yes, I can understand that, before we had the pump in the Spanish house, we had to bucket and the shower was a plastic 2 litre water bottle with holes hung from an olive tree and you could just manage to wash and rinse before it ran out!

Very familiar with make do showers....lol. I've moved it inside since here I have more neighbors than my last cabin.
