My growing season is so short that I bought a chest freezer this week. I would prefer an upright for ease of use but the cost is 3 times higher. The nosedive model it is.
This is assuming that I get a bit of food production this year. Even so, I plan to buy meat in bulk to keep cost per pound down.
All is going well so far in the vegetable patch. I have potatoes, onions, asparagus, pumpkins, corn, summer squash, Zuchini, acorn squash, watermelon, NM chili, sunflowers, western salsify, pinons, and fruit trees. Next year the fruit trees will likely bear fruit.
It has been around 90 degrees and dry. Monsoons should start in a week or three. I don’t have any moisture forecast until July 1.
