Growing Opportunities

It’s the beginning of February – by most measures, the heart of winter – and Steve Martin is wearing shorts. Partially perhaps because we’re enjoying some marvelously warm midwinter weather, but specifically because the weather in the carefully climate controlled greenhouses in which Steve farms hovers around a warm and lightly humid low seventies.    […]

For instance – whenever I call customer service, and speak with someone who actually identifies themselves as being stationed in the states, I get to entertain all sorts of questions about New Mexico.

Our School at Blair Grocery

[If you like to listen, “tune in” to hear Stacy Pearl and I talk the delicious decadence of NOLA and the rebirth of Blair Grocery on her KSFR Mouth of Wonder radio show] My first visit to New Orleans’ notorious lower 9th Ward was in July, 2007. I’d been to New Orleans on a nearly […]
