    actually, maybe i will make it official. a "Desert Moon Farm" logo would look awfully nice on the gate to my driveway. the farm consists of me, my husband, our son, 2 dogs, 6 cats, 30 chickens, 2 ducks, 2 cockatiels, and hopefully someday a horse, goat, geese, hedgehog, who knows?

    first we tried gardening. just one problem - two people from pennsylvania, one of whom has always lived in town and doesn't even like vegetables (gasp!) should not expect a successful gardening endeavor in the high desert of new mexico. we've made a lot of progress since then.
    the next big project was a greenhouse attached to the south end of our house. a door enters through the library, which is really cool because i can go wander amongst my books and look out and see green things, even in the winter.
