Town and country
This photograph locates our finca (marked in red line) on the edge of the pueblo although we have some protection from the oak and stone- pine trees on one side we are also bounded by open farm land. The fields which are fairly small are used for the production of barley.
Open terrain and grazing sheep mean that we get weeds in abundance. We have watched the wild flowers and grasses over two seasons and we are decideding which we can retain.
Xeriscape style gardening may be the answer for our hot dry plot, using plants native to the region.
