"Thank each of you for your thoughts and for the discussion. I've found the right place, and it's on Gold Street downtown. Will have more details to share this week! Look for an opening within 60 days."

Worms Bedding Under the Sink, Poo Smell In The Air

Dear Readers, 

Apologies for the lack of a summer post. But I still am trying to figure out the key to successful summer vegetable gardening on a super hot deck in downtown Albuquerque subject to high valley temperatures (I am maybe 3/4 of a mile from…

Thank God for Spring!

I left New Mexico for a few days on Feb. 1: the exact day the brutal, 50-year cold front began its move into the state. While my absence was beautiful for more reasons than I can count or even remember, it did result in at least one casualty: the rooftop garden.
