Chevre/Feta Cheese class a success!

Here is a picture of Alessandra’s feta cheese from last Home Grown New Mexico’s Sunday’s cheese class.  Diane Pratt and Alessandra Haines did a wonderful job prepping and presenting how to make these 2 great cheeses. Diane did the chèvre cheese and showed people how to make different flavors while Alessandra showed how to make feta cheese which takes longer. Everyone got to taste both cheeses (and different flavors of chèvre) on Diane’s freshly baked home-made bread and take home some chèvre curds to finish off at home. Hats off to both instructors for a great class! Many thanks!

Cool Season Crops Outside class a success

Biggest class ever and what a great day it was to get out in a garden and see how to prep the garden beds, go over what plants do well here in Santa Fe and we actually planted some cool season crops-lettuces, kale and chard in Duskin’s plot at Milagro Community Garden. Thanks to all for supporting the class, it was good to see our friends.

Here are the handouts if you missed the class:
Starting Cool Season Crops Outside
WINTER:EARLY SPRING HARDY VEGETABLES

PRESPOUTING SEEDS Starting Cool Season Crops Outside
Mycorrhizal benefits

The next class of ours should be fantastic -Making Chevre and Feta cheese on April 19! Don’t wait too long to sign up as that class is limited to 25 lucky people who will learn how to make both cheeses and get to take home some of the cheese as well.
