Mazatlán isn’t really the tropics, but it’s pretty tropical, I’d say. And down here now is the time for planting your vegetables. The hot and humid weather has finally broken and we know that for the next (almost) eight months the weather will be moderate and sunny.
Next Saturday will be the first Farmer’s Market of the season – from 8 – 12 at Plazuela Zaragoza. We are looking forward it, each year it is better and better. I like to eat as much organic produce as I can, and there is some fantastic stuff at the market.
Do you remember the property Paul and I moved from in the US? (Some of you may have been reading my blog since the beginning!) That’s a picture of my off season garden at the top of this post. The gardening itself was a great source of pleasure for me, and both of us enjoyed the produce.
This year I am going to make a bit of an attempt at a garden here. I have started several kinds of tomatoes, watermelon, cucumbers, peas, beans, ginger, and zucchini. All the starts are doing well and are happily growing on our upstairs patio. That’s a picture of a few of them, above. Keep your fingers crossed for me that they continue to prosper!
You know what? I totally missed mentioning that I just passed a bloggiversary! My first blog post was on October 26, 2006. That’s 8 years ago! I hope you’ve been with me from the beginning but thank you for reading no matter when you started!
