The area in which we live is an ancient lakebed, some 10,000 years ago Giant Ground Sloths, Wooly Mammoths, and Saber Toothed Cats roamed the land. Moving forward approx 9,920 years the area was considered prime for recovering war vets who suffered from toxic gasses and PTSD. Municiple services were run through swaths of vast dry desert providing city water and electricity to anyone who wanted the land. Homestead kits were sold in town for roughly $700, many of the abandoned lots around us have old shacks or concrete slabs where cabins used to stand. From what we know our home was last occupied in the 80's and had been left to decay until my husband bought the property 15 years ago. We have been slowly working on it ever since. It was mainly a weekend project for us until we decided to move here full time 4 years ago. These days it's a pretty quiet little valley with families and young couples, but we are spread out. We have no direct neighbors touching our property and we are all on 5 acre lots or bigger. Today we continue the spirit of homesteading by rehabilitating the original home structure, creating a symbiotic desert garden for fresh fruits and vegetables, a 15 tree orchard with olives, pomegranates, pears, apples, peaches, plums, and apricots. We also have 3 dogs, 2 cats, 10 chickens and 1 rooster (Yes, he crows).
