We were back at the farm on Thursday to do the requisite inspections before closing escrow. After writing large checks to the building, termite, septic and well inspectors, we learned, quel surprise, there is a lot of broken to fix. Not shocking when buying a 50-year-old farm-house, but, sigh.
Here are some more pictures of the place I took while we were there.
The apricots, still going strong
Moving irrigation pipes around – my future.
Front of the house.
See that empty pool in front? I have always wanted to grow water lilies and lotus.
Antique incinerator, to dispose of the evidence I suppose 🙂
There are a few huge old Monterey cypress on the property that cast some delicious shade.
Water tank is rusty but the well produces a whopping 60 gallons a minute. In California, living on top of an aquifer is pure gold.
Forgive me, I have a soft spot for sun flares.
