Desert Homesteading

by Dave Larson

My wife, Barbara, and I retired from teaching in Tucson, Arizona, to a 10-acre piece of Chihuahuan desert in Southeast Arizona where we live in a strawbale home we built ourselves. Now we garden, help our neighbors, tend our orchard, hike in the desert, write, and continue our building projects.  For more on Desert Homesteading – way too busy to be called retirement – we invite you to check out our site:
