More Abandoned Campfires in Santa Fe National Forest

There will be another community meeting tonight at 6 p.m. June 18, 2017 at the Jemez Mountain Baptist Church, 6 Riverview Court, La Cueva, NM. to give the community latest information on the El Cajete Fire.

It has been determined the fire was started by an abandoned campfire. The carelessness of these campers has disrupted peoples’ lives, cost the taxpayer millions of dollars and endangered the lives of hundreds of firefighters. Three more abandoned campfires that needed the attention of fire crews in the Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) were reported on the New Mexico Fire Information site. This is happening as smoke billows over the mountains and over 300 firefighters battle the nearby 1.367 El Cajete blaze.

Farmers Market News

What a great opening market! The first hour was such a whirlwind that there was little left in the way of produce. Even so, I did not hear any complaints, and the growers got the message. They will be bringing more this coming Saturday.

More plants, more produce and the continual abundance of eggs. We have a promise of chard, kale, bok choy, pak choy, lettuce, radishes, turnips, beets, peas, spinach, scallions, onions and some fresh herbs. Plus we will have seedlings of tomatoes, peppers [hot and sweet]. cucumbers, squash, cabbage, basil fennel, and chamomile.

On top of all that, we will have salves, soaps, cards, artwork, jewelry, bags, wristees, and a massage chair available. There’s probably more than mentioned (yogurt, jams and dried fruit come to mind).

You’ll just have to go check it out for yourself.
