Indigo Street Studio Kitchen Garden

Cool weather dark kale grows amidst the dill, lettuce, and chard. The white frost cloth in the rear is covering low-growing  nasturtiums, which like cool but not freezing weather.

We’ve had above average rainfall this year and the Sonoran Desert is lush! We saw this gorgeous, pink-flowering Flat-top Buckwheat  (Eriogonum fasciculatum) in full bloom during a recent end-of-year hike in Usery Mountain Regional Park, Mesa, Arizona. Behind it, Teddy Bear Chollas (Cylindropuntia bigelovii) taller than a person catch the morning light.

A Bowl of Christmas Cheer from Winfield Gallery

It was a great surprise to see Winfield Gallery use this image of Farraday Newsome’s bowl as a recent gallery holiday greeting captioned “A Bowl of Christmas Cheer from Winfield Gallery!”

I am happy to be represented by this fine arts gallery in Carmel, California. The owner, Chris Winfield, is a noted painter and gallerist who has supported the arts for many years.

A Winter Hike in Usery Mountain Regional Park

Mesa, Arizona

We took a walk on a recent cool, clear morning in nearby Usery Mountain Regional Park, located in east Mesa. Here’s a view of Pass Mountain, the largest feature in the park. Saguaros, chollas, palo verde trees, ironwood trees, and barrel cacti abound!

The Superstition Mountains rise to the east. It was in the mid-30‘s F that morning and we could see snow on the furthest ranges (upper left).

The two of us bundled up, and Skye in her little red jacket! Snakes are hibernating this time of year, but all three of us were thrilled to see a deer bounding through desert brush and a roadrunner trotting along the trail ahead of us. Sorry, no photos of that!

The recent, mildly freezing mornings have left the winter vegetables unaffected. These include kale, lettuce, chard, snow peas, arugula, and radishes. On the other hand, our warm weather vegetables, like tomatoes and peppers, did need covering. Their wire supports offer an excellent frame on which to clothespin frost cloths. Skye makes it into another photo!

The snow peas are trellised on the south-facing side of our vegetable enclosure. These reliable champions grow 8 feet high every year! We cover them if the temperatures drop into the 20’s F, but it hasn’t gotten that cold yet.
