Signed, Sealed, (and almost) Delivered

Photo: Our house in San Francisco. The yucca is in bloom out front. The blue bushes are ceanothus a.k.a. California False Lilac.

Done deal. The house is ours. The tractor is ours. The orchard is ours. I own 12 acres in the Red Hills of Dundee!

Now we just have to haul up stakes and get settled in our new home. This isn't as easy as it sounds. We've got a lot of STUFF. Jim has a ton of albums. We're talking 12" vinyl records from decades of record collecting. I've got some records, too. My big guilty pleasure are books. I've got lots and lots of books. Cookbooks, cheese books. reference books, fiction, guide books, field guides, biographies. Lots of books. Our kitchen is crammed full of stuff, too. This is scary.

Here are more photos to keep you happy in the meantime.

This is our new home, with lots of red soil. The red hills of Dundee make some mighty fine wines. Hopefully, they will make some mighty fine cheeses, too.
