Sandia gratis

One of the workers on my house lives in the neighborhood and across the street from the very large sandia (watermelon) field. About mid morning he walked in with this delicious seedless (only white seeds) melon.

Part of the benefits of living in farmland are the fruits and veggies either free of very cheap. At the end of the day today a couple of kids brought me a large bag of serrano peppers. I gave them 10 pesos but originally they wanted nothing. I can eat serrano peppers fresh off the bush but do leave most of the seeds behind.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
