One of the leading succulent and cactus experts in the country, Woody Minnich has traveled the world in search of rare and beautiful specimen for over 45 years. He lectures all around the country (he even has succulent varieties named after him!) and lucky for us lives just south of Santa Fe, where he grows and cultivates many of his finds in a 1200 square foot greenhouse for his company Cactus Data Plants.
Ranney Ranch beef is unique in that it is not finished. They sell most of their cattle as young beef direct to consumers shortly after they have been weaned. The Ranneys process the beef in Fort Sumner, and this short trip, for most of their cows, is the only fossil fuel their production requires.

Whew! Last growing season was really tough for my garden so I am really relieved at how beautiful the plants are this year, especially the salad greens. I have grown them under netting to protect them from the birds and under shade cloth to keep them away from the harsh sun (which keeps them tender). We have so much lettuce I am putting (sneaking?) it into the family smoothies. The kids have no idea. All I hear is "yum!"

A few years ago, in May, we were in Boulder, Colorado. Poppies were everywhere and many were the size of fists. As we rode around town my face was plastered to the window. “Look at that one, and that one, and that…”
We had a taste of tiny living before moving here: I spent eight months living in a smaller camper outside of Las Vegas, New Mexico, and we spent a summer together in a far more rustic camper when we managed a herd of 1,000 goats for weed control in Montana.
Since we unloaded our first steers in November, we’ve built our herd to about 600 animals. They’ve ranged all over the 30-square-mile Number 5 pasture, utilizing it well. Now we’re getting ready to move them to the south end of the ranch, where the other part of our lease is. After gathering the steers into a smaller fenced trap, we’ll take two days to drive them 20 miles across the ranch to another pasture.
