Fierce winds, snow and rain do not feel like harbingers of spring but here in Northern New Mexico we’ve grown accustomed to mother nature’s might. Ever so grateful for every drop of moisture as we leave a very dry winter behind. The most dramatic change has been in the growing dome where the fig tree has definitely decided that spring is here. Ducks and many birds have returned to the pond. Donna is hard at work doing a complete redesign of the outside vegetable gardens, with goals to simplify, while also making it easier to deal with critters and weeds.
