Hey Joran,

Thanks for your insight on this page. I have another question. Are there any local organic recommendations you can give regarding coddling moths in orchards? I know there are organic phernome products available, and predatory wasps. I've also considered putting some apples in plastic bags (while they grow). What is best? What about timing? Thanks!

on the frost question - if it doesn't get below 29 there are your place, chances are pretty good the fruit will pull through.  If it gets below 28, chances are pretty good you'll have damage and loss.  You could try covering the trees with old sheets and blankets, maybe put an incandescent bulb under there as well - depending on how many trees you have!  or, run a sprinkler under the canopy overnight - the water will give off enough heat to keep the canopy a few degrees above the surrounding ambient temperature.

I noticed its getting down below freezing on Saturday in the Albuquerque area...29-31. Is this low enough to worry about cherries, apricots, and peaches? My fruit is already growing!

There are still two 10'X12' plots availabe for planting this season at Loma Linda Community Garden 1700 Yale SE. Cost of plots is three hours of volunteer work per month in community areas. 4" of Western Organic Soil Builder added last summer. For more information call Maggie at 764-1525

Are you a land owner looking for someone to farm your land? Are you a farmer looking for land to farm? Or maybe you're a beginning farmer looking for a mentorship or internship opportunity with an experienced farmer? We're working on expanding our Central New Mexico LandLink program. Check out our website to see if we can help. We are in the process of inputing our "Seeker" listings, so stay tuned.


The Central New Mexico LandLink is an effort to connect entrepreneurial farmers and ranchers looking for land and farming opportunity to agricultural landowners, and farm and ranch internship and mentorship possibilities. 


If you have any questions please contact us at:

My husband, Robert and I hosted our first Benefiical Farms CSA distribution on Friday. We are distributing from the Kosmic Trading Post in Nob Hill -- a cooperative of healers in Albuquerque (if you've never stopped in, have a look at all their beautiful stuff).  This week the vegetable share was - 5 pink lady apples, 8 purple potatoes, 1 bag of sprouts, 1.5 lb bag of shelled peanuts, 1 lb. bag of frozen figs or apricots, and a jar of chutney! And everything within our local food region! Please consider supporting the farmers that grow organic/chemical-free vegetables in our region by going to and signing up for the CSA!
