My Summer Garden at 8900 feet in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Gardening at that altitude is a whole different ball game. Took me about 6 years to decide that the garden was going to only do what IT wanted to.
I also have a 10x10 garden in our little tourist town that I volunteer to plant and care for. They are spaced 4 to a block, both sides of the street on the little main street of our town. We provide plants, water and care for them. I love working on it during the tourist season because the nicest people stop and talk to me.
I just threw this one in so you'll know I'm not a wanna-be Farm Girl-- Several years I helped my Dad get the peach crop off in September. I miss him.To share with other Farm Girls and learn the Farm Girl way of life visit:

The only remaining Indian Protection Tower left in the State. Evidently these
were common place 150 years ago.
This is the original house and is restored very nicely inside. Caretakers live on the property and give excellent personal tours.
View from inside the Indian Tower John Moyle was kicked in the leg by a cow and the leg had to be amputated. He carved himself a wooden leg that actually hinged at the ankle.
