One of three feeds from a 50-gallons per hour Flowing Artesian well
(uphill near the front gate) fills a 6' diameter by 2' tank that empties twice
a day into a mesquite & willow grove that shades several structures. A
canvas wall tent is seen in the background. The living area is a shaded
one-acre permaculture micro-environment watered by the artesian. You
can see one of the 50-ft willows (a 7-tree grove )and a few 30-ft mesquites.

Can eating responsibly prevent nuke-caused cancers and
auto-immune diseases? No! But every day eat only organic
food, locally grown, if possible. And your immune system
will have its best chance at fending-off the cellular
disruptions caused by ionizing radiation from the nuclear
catastrophe, at hand!
Every Morning, Wow! What a Breakfast! All organic:
Local lemons, baby spinach, blue corn tortilla chips;
toasted potatoes, jalapeños & onion; fresh-sliced tomato
and mushrooms; curry and fresh-ground peppercorns
Later in the day all-organic or locally grown:
Toasted multi-grain bread, fresh-ground coffee,
wild-grown by a community-owned co-op in Nayarit,
Mexico. Fresh lemon & lime, celery, tomato, green
pepper, carrots and sliced mushrooms topped with
blue corn tortilla chips.
