    We got to use our new prickly pear tweezers and munched several of the yummy fruits. It was amazing how few there were but fun to see how many of them we saw in the coon scats. Yup good food for everyone. Thanks for all your good advice about the local area. We had a great time in Sycamore canyon and wet beaver creek. I hope all is well with you all. Doug

      Thanks for the update Doug! I’m glad that the tongs came in useful while you were out here in the Verde Valley and since it’s getting late in the “tuna season” there aren’t too many fruits out there, unless you look around long enough :) I’m happy to hear that you were able to find some nonetheless.

        you could get herbs that are babies and araeldy planted at garden centers at places like lowes or home depot.or you could start with seeds and plant them in some planters with some good soil and some water, with the sun coming it’s perfect time to start one. start with basil, or rosemary. be sure to label all of your pots.

          Thanks for commenting! We currently are starting our own plant starts from organic & heirloom seeds, as well as propagating from what we already have growing in our gardens. All of our seasonal culinary and medicinal plants are available at our booth during the Sedona Farmers Market (12pm to 4pm) or can be picked up from our studio (by request). We will try our best to label our plant starts (with the Latin & common names) :) Have a great day!propagating
