Spring Planting in Taos

Happy Spring!

I received the following email today from Lettuce Grow Farmsa family operated farm on 2.25 acres located in El Prado, New Mexico. They are dedicated to saving and selling open-pollinated (reproduce true to form) heirloom seeds. (handed down for generations) :

"Hello and Happy Spring!

We started selling heirloom, open pollinated seeds a few years ago. Attached is a list of seeds that we have available this spring. The packets sell for $2.95 plus tax. You can email us your order and we will get them packaged up. Please feel free to pass this email along to anyone that you think might be interested. 

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the farm soon!

Sadly, due to our construction project, our back yard is currently housing all the equipment, tools, trucks and supplies. The rest is, literally, just dirt. So I will not be doing much gardening this year. I will have to be satisfied with growing herbs, chile, peppers and flowers in large pots. (maybe a couple of tomato plants?) But I can dream about next year.

For those of you living in Taos...or visiting from close by...I suggest you visit Lettuce Grow Farm. And please check out their website to learn more about this wonderful organization.
