Los Ranchos Growers Market

So, for the last two weekends I actually made it out to the Los Ranchos Growers Market.  I have been wanting to take this blog “on the road” and go out to a bunch of different local places.   I have actually made it to a couple, one being the mentioned growers market.  One reason it took me so long to post about this is because I have terrible talent with photo taking, especially in public places.  Now, the photographer in this dynamic duo is going to start attending these types of things with me, as soon as I stop making last minute decisions to attend. I realized today after a brief trip to the local aquarium that my children have a better eye for photography than i do.

SO ABOUT THE LOS RANCHOS GROWERS MARKET (took me long enough to get to the point, didn’t it).

I enjoy wandering around this market, and to be honest, it’s the only one i’ve been to.  i realize that this is horrible, but i will get around to the others soon enough.  The fishhugger booth resides at this growers market, so I always pick this one first.  We sampled one of the many types of honey they have at their table.  They have two locals, mountain and desert, and we tried the desert.  I was reminded that honey is extremely tasty and I should use it more.

I didn’t buy anything this week, but last week bought two massive zucchinis off of a nice old couple, and have made zucchini bread since that was just wonderful.  Since the squash bugs obliterated every squash, melon and cuke plant i had in the back, i have replanted seeds, but buy local in the interim.  I have spoken with several growers who have said that most of their squash and cuke plants have met the same demise.  It is very frustrating, but i will keep trying to grow them.   I was even lucky enough to have a husband with a good eye, who found me a box turtle.  The turtle was wandering up our street. I will post about him soon because i have many question and are hoping that someone out there has some answers.  I’m hoping he will have a feast on these evil bugs.

Posts to come: Los Poblanos Farm Shop, our box turtle (who is yet to be named something i approve of), and veggies of our labor.
