The changing seasons push us along a well worn path more than the calendar does. When my fig trees in Phoenix are ripening, it’s time to pack for a mini-migration.
I’m excited for cherry season to start, especially after late frost killed ‘em all last year around Albuquerque. We picked and juiced 400 pounds of locally grown cherries 2 years ago and fermented the most amazing cherry chocolate chile meade. I am hoping to repeat the experiment and have a party!
Beef harvest is on schedule in spite of the current drought conditions. My grandfather insisted on under stocking the summer ranch near Sofia, New Mexico so we would always have fat beef to eat, save the grass to build soil and sequester carbon.
We look forward to our first day back to the Los Ranchos Growers Market tomorrow to visit with friends and shop the market. We intend to be there most Saturday’s throughout the summer and our market calendar & events page is currently updated through early July 2021.
We stock 3 varieties of wild Alaska salmon to fill your freezer along with a little halibut and black cod to treat yourself and maybe a lucky few.
See you at the market!
