At Rancho Bella Vista (Home of Darn Hot

It is a long way yet from Planting Day ( in May usually), and even the beginnings of Real Spring is just a touch remote, but we are feeling  the stirrings of familiar activities: seed selections, measuring the fields ,etc.

Here is our 2011 calendar also, so if you like you could print it out and put it up on your refrigerator. Contains a list of our major events and we hope you enjoy the colorful photos of some of our peppers.

Carol will be having knee surgery this winter, but come on out and see us when the FARM STORE OPENS in June and until then shop online — many bargains left and ready to be requested. Buen Provecho!

Happy Love Day!

Helado Anaranjado Cremoso ~ Creamy Orange Ice Cream
– Reposted from Hispanic Kitchen

We found this recipe and it is just sooo yummy that we had to share!

The only thing we would add, would be to sprinkle some mirasol pepper flakes on top, cuz sweet and spicy just go so well together.
