We are finally having a real winter and the snow in the valley has stayed on with the temperatures below freezing now for a week – brrr.. The snowpack in the Sangre de Cristo mountains will provide plenty of water for our acequia in the spring and summer. That will be a welcome relief after the drought we suffered last season. I’ve spent the short, cold days sorting and packing seed. We are offering dozens of new varieties for 2019. This is always exciting. It won’t be long before we need to start seedlings and begin the cycle anew.
I hope all of you feel refreshed, renewed and ready to begin another year!
