Jemez Springs Burglaries Surge

By R.W.

If it wasn’t so tragic, it would be comic, or at least so bizarre as to be improbable.

A horrible report on Jemez Springs appeared in today’s KRQE web page and TV news detailing a surge of burglaries and the circumstances surrounding them. The lovely peaceful village, hidden away from the crime-ridden centers of crime-ridden New Mexico is being publicized in the state as a center of a crime wave. Bizarre can be comic, but here it is tragic. Local residents have been stricken with repeated break-ins, often loosing not just valuables, but deeply treasured and irreplaceable family possessions.

Throw a Couple of Cherries on Top

JEMEZ SPRINGS FARMERS MARKET

This week at the Farmers Market, besides our fabulous regulars, Dave will be bringing his knife sharpening equipment (he’ll be here the 8th and the 22nd) and Karen will bring blackberries!

We are all eagerly anticipating fresh tomatoes, but with this heat those dang things kinda go on strike and refuse to grow. So, we all have to be patient and dance, drum, sing, stomp or pray for RAIN to quench this heat and let the tomatoes flow. But on the other hand, amazingly, we have fresh greens, beets, carrots, herbs, onions, garlic, zuchinni, choys, lettuce, carrots. radishes, honey, spinach, rhubarb, arugala. collards, flowers, eggs, balms, yogurt and MORE.

As I write this, I’m even impressed. So dig out your dull knives and get your smiles ready to share and show up this Saturday for some of the finest produce and company to be had. See you there.

Fourth of July in Jemez Springs

Jemez Springs lived up to its high standards this fourth of July. A huge, spirited parade wove its way down the highway in the village with the sidewalk and shoulders lined with spectators.

When it was over the crowds drifted into the village plaza, and milled around the great selection of stalls.

Congratulations to the organizers, the “paraders” and to the crowds in attendance for making this a great day. Here are some images from this morning:

Annual Congestion Festival aka 2017 Racing Southwest Jemez Cruise Road Rally Revisits Jemez Springs

Photos R.W.

It is so pathetic how rarely Jemez Springs experiences choking traffic and pedestrian gridlock. This Sunday afternoon our nearest metro areas gave us all they had: revving, fuming motors encased in glaring metal, waves of strange and unfamiliar looking people, a dense pack of beings and their conveyances as surprised to see one another as we were surprised to see them.

In case you all missed it, cowering in darkened rooms, here are some images from a fraction of the day:

JEMEZ SPRINGS FARMERS MARKET

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.
