Seasons Are Changing

We still have another month until fall, but we are starting to see the signs of change already. It isn’t quite as hot during the day, and gets cooler at night. And, more importantly, we got green chile in our box this week! I bought less last year than the year before; but I must have been hoarding it, because I still have some left. However, chile is a once a year opportunity, so I’m definitely buying!

Produce from Everywhere!

We just got a new box of produce, and our garden has started producing. We are swimming in produce! I love having so many options to cook with. Now, if I just had more time….

Patty Pan Squash

Only one of my Patty Pan squash plants made it, but it is producing like crazy. These 2 were ready at the same time, and there are 2 more almost ready. I’m going to have to start freezing, I think.

New Box for Camping

Because of all the recent rains, many of the New Mexico State Parks have relaxed the fire restrictions. Relaxed, but not eliminated. We have been in a drought for 3 years, so it will take more than a couple of weeks of good rains to completely reduce the fire danger.

We are taking advantage of the changes and making our first camping trip of the year! Can’t wait to take our CSA box “on the road.”

My Crazy Life

You may have noticed my absence from blogging lately. Life has been absolutely crazy! Between a nurse practitioner conference and vacation, I spent a lot of time on airplanes and not much in my own bed. In a 2 1/2 week period, I was only home 3 days-barely enough time to do laundry.

I am going to be (mostly) home for a while, and have restarted delivery on our harvest boxes. This is a great time of the year for our CSA.

Life is going to be a bit crazy the next few weeks-travel, company, and craziness at work. I ended up ordering a lot of fruit this week. This allows me to throw together a quick fruit salad, or we can just eat it! Needless to say, I will not be blogging often the next few weeks!
