On the road to Hatch

Pecan trees

Going from Caballo to do laundry in. Hatch I pass numerous pecan trees planted in perfect rows for miles and later along the way I see rows and rows of corn fields, last week the corn in some fields has been harvested, there are fields of cotton that look almost ready to harvest and miles of peppers. Hatch is “the peppers capital of the world”

Not very clear but I think these are peppers

New Mexico is an agricultural state and has two planting seasons depending on the area.

My crop this year, poor because of the heat but revived in early fall.

I’m planning to keep heat in my studio this winter to save my plants. Last winter I had plants with a grow light in my RV, (they didn’t do very well,) now I’m sleeping up there so not much space to keep my pots of plants.

Yesterday I cleaned up the garden pulled out the tomato plants and now I have left a squash plant, a watermelon plant with three small watermelons that I think are miniatures, a cucumber plant, several. Basil plants, I really like the smell of basil and keep a pot of it in my kitchen window,Having to write on my iPad as my computer green and black bell peppers and finally some flowers, I hope we don’t get a freeze soon. I’d really like to enjoy my small patch of green a while longer. I see that after tomorrow we will be in the 70s during the day but drops pretty cold at night.

Having to write this on my iPad with my hot spot as my computer is acting strange but although I’m not used to writing on this I hardly need my computer any more, and that’s okay, I’ll need to learn more about this device, I’m sure I’m not using all its functions.


Trip didn’t happen

I was convinced to not move the RV until Chip the RV guy checked it out and I’d also checked my tires. So I just got another 2 gallons of gas plus a friend added a bit more so when I tried the generator having a quarter tank of gas, she started! I bought a filer and oil for the generator but don’t have the tools I’d need to change the oil myself. so when I go to town I’ll get that done plus an oil change for the truck as well. Next is to resolve my roof problems. My poor Gigi has been neglected but now I’m determined to be a better owner to avoid costly problems that prevent travel. I guess I’ll travel into town once a month to keep things functional. At least that’s what is suggested I do. I’m thinking about selling art from Gigi now and then in town.
