Enjoying the rural lifestyle! We got the 1948 Farmall Cub running and doing some work! What a hoot! Placitas offers many different lifestyles---we enjoy the old acequia and our orchard and vineyard.

First time irrigating the orchard this spring! Wonderful acequia system in the Village of Placitas. The apples are blooming and lovely. I enjoy the sound of the bees and critters in the trees. 
Spring in New Mexico feels sunny and warm!

Time to think about a vegetable garden! You should check out the great information from the New Mexico Extension Service at

There is very specific information available about when to plant, how to plant, how close to plant, types of veggies that do well in NM. Lots of great details.

I plan on having a great garden this year with at least tomatoes and chile! Photos from previous years!
