I am dreaming of a stone cabin in a food forest.
I have 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on a west-facing hill in Santa Fe County, New Mexico that is part of a series of hills that makes a good wildlife corridor.
Last night I saw a wolf. I was driving home and he ran across the road through my head lights. It was about 16 degrees with 6 inches of snow on the ground. I think he is well fed because we have endless cottontails in the neighborhood, a few jackrabbits, and mice. Mule deer too, if he has a family around to help take them down.
The base trees of my food forest are pinyon trees. They only bear pine nuts every few years, but are delicious and loved by humans and wild life.
