bosque farms: An icy start to 2011! - 01/02/11 05:18 AM
We've had an icy start to the New Year here in Bosque Farms, with single-digit temperatures. We had a bit of snow a couple of days ago, but it vanished quickly, as is usual here in NM. Now we've got lovely, sunny skies, but I'm looking out at lovely, ice-sheathed grass blades on my lawn! Husband Brian decided to turn on the sprinklers yesterday, and it was so cold that it froze as it landed, encapsulating each blade of grass individually, for our own miniature "ice storm" effects... Crunchy under the feet, for the feel of a "back east" winter here … (0 comments)

bosque farms: Lakes in the desert... - 07/26/10 06:56 AM
Folks who are not familiar with New Mexico often think "desert" and picture an area full of nothing but sand dunes and cactus. Couldn't be further frorm the truth! In addition to our lush, green river valley areas and pine-covered "Rocky Mountain Highs," we've even got lakes. Pretty big lakes. For boating and watere skiing and fishing...
Recently, my extended family spent a long weekend at one of our nearby lakes, Elephant Butte. Just an hour and a half drive south from our home in Bosque Farms, we enjoyed getting out on the jet skis, boating, water skiing, inner tubing, making … (1 comments)

bosque farms: Fundraiser for Injured Valencia County Native Nets $70,000 - 03/20/10 10:29 AM
Last Saturday, the 13th of March, supporters, friends and family flocked to the Bosque Farms Rodeo Arena from all over New Mexico to raise funds toward the recovery of Senior Airman Michael Malarsie, a Bosque Farms native who was severely injured serving near Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan.
The 22-year-old lost his sight when an improvised explosive device went off during an attack. His family faced extensive medical bills for his initial recovery period at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., and his continued rehabilitation at the Western Blind Rehabilitation Center in Palo Alto, Ca.

bosque farms: Bosque Farms Real Estate Market Looks Promising This Year! - 03/20/10 09:48 AM

 
Anyone can be a pessimist about the real estate market. All over the U.S., the economy-- and the housing market along with it-- look pretty bleak, and no one's more aware of that than you and I. As real estate agents, sellers or buyers, we get used to the ups and downs of the market year by year. In this case, the "down" seems to be lasting a bit longer than we'd like to see.
But in my little corner of the country, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Nestled quietly in the valley just south … (1 comments)

bosque farms: Learned from Twitter: How to tell genetically modified food! - 07/11/09 08:38 AM
Did you know that there is a quick and easy way to tell whether the fruits or vegetables you buy are genetically modified?
               
I didn't. In fact, I've thought for a long time that the government should require GM food to be clearly labeled as such. One of the folks I follow on Twitter tweeted yesterday that there actually IS as way to tell, quickly and easily, and provided a link to all the details. A big thank you to "jandreadis" for the tip, an for the full scoop, see www.plantea.com/genetically-modified-food.html )

bosque farms: Why isn't Rodeo our State Sport? - 07/09/09 12:12 PM
Apparently Rodeo IS the state sport in both Texas and Wyoming, according to a recent article in the Valencia County News Bulletin.
Why isn't it so here in New Mexico? All over my neck of the woods (Bosque Farms, in Valencia County) rodeo is a way of life for a huge segment of the population. Rodeos, barrel racing competition, and ropings are happening on an almost daily basis, at the Bosque Farms Arena and the two different arenas at the Valencia County Fairgrounds in Belen, not to mention at dozens of other arenas all over the rural parts of the state.

bosque farms: A great parenting example... - 06/05/09 05:03 AM
Each day lately, I enjoy watching a great example of self-sacrificing parenthood--- in my garden!
 
 
A couple of weeks ago, I discovered a pair of little birds who got very agitated whenever I headed over to my beans and pumpkin patch. One or the other of them would fly at me, land nearby and twitter away at me, then run off and start pretending to be a poor, broken-winged bird.
I'd never seen this before, but had read of it, and realized that some birds do this to try to lure dangerous predators away from their nests.

bosque farms: My luv is like a ...multi-colored... rose.... - 06/04/09 09:41 AM
With all due respect to Robert Burns, a "red, red rose" has always seemed, well, ordinary, to me in comparison with some of the other options that are out there. And while a single, long-stemmed rose, or even a fragrant bouquet is all well and good, there's a limit to their staying power.
 
 
Who was it that pointed out the difference between giving a man a fish and teaching him to fish? Well, there's a similar difference between giving a rose (a red, red rose or any other kind) and giving ongoing roses...

bosque farms: Waterfowl in my desert NM backyard! - 06/03/09 07:18 AM
Probably sounds ridiculous to those not really familiar with the Albuquerque, NM area, but our New Mexico desert is actually home to loads of water birds!
 
 More particularly, my backyard right here in Bosque Farms, New Mexico, hosts loads of waterfowl on a regular basis!
 
 
The key, of course, is water, and we've definitely got that here along the Rio Grande Valley.
 
We regularly ditch-irrigate our pastures, grow a huge organic garden, and play host to some gorgeous, and even threatened, species of waterfowl!
The other day, after irrigating our pastures, I noticed some long-legged water birds that I had … (2 comments)

bosque farms: I'm so lucky... to live here! - 05/12/09 02:26 PM
I'm so lucky to live where I live, here in Bosque Farms, NM! Take a look, and see what I mean! I've got
1. wonderful, "Land of Enchantment" sunsets and rainbows to look at right outside my front door
 
 
 
 
 
2. plenty of water to grow a huge, food-factory-size garden, despite living in a "desert" state
 
 
 
 
 
3. cranes, ducks, geese, and other waterfowl hanging out in my pastures and flying overhead along the Rio Grande
 
 
 
 
 
4. lush pastures for my little herd of horses (a necessity for a "horse … (9 comments)

bosque farms: No Return of the Gophers Yet! - 03/31/09 08:46 AM
Last week I ran post about how I seem to have gotten rid of pocket gophers by using red balloons:
http://activerain.com/blogsview/1005512/Got-Gophers-Get-Red-Balloons
Based on a hint from my sister, whose 3-year-old son had gotten rid of their gophers problem by stuffing a red balloon down the gopher hole, I tried the same trick on the pocket gopher(s) that had been destroying my front lawn for a year. It seemed to do the trick, but sounded too weird to be possible.
I kept wondering if maybe my gopher had just take the day off, or perhaps stayed in bed with a 48-hour bug. But … (10 comments)

bosque farms: Successful Open Houses--- on TUESDAY? - 03/29/09 05:48 AM
In this market, we're all trying to come up with new marketing ploys to give fresh traffic to slow-moving listings, which, nowadays, is nearly ALL of the them! Some years ago, when we were still associates with a large local company, my husband and I won an award for "Thinking Outside the Box for our innovative marketing ploys, so this is something of a forte for us, and my husband, Brian, has definitely had on his thinking cap to come up with new strategies for marketing listings.
Accordingly, a few weeks ago, he decided to try out one new idea for a couple of our listings that are … (2 comments)
