Celebrating San Ysidro Day

San Ysidro mural by Paul hurd

Today marks the feast day of San Ysidro, the patron saint of farmers, gardeners and laborers. An important figure around the farm, his remarkable story has been told for centuries. Ysidro and his wife, Maria, were poor farm laborers who went to mass every morning before going to work. Yet despite the hours of lost labor, the fields and plants were as well cared for as those of other laborers. When other farm workers became envious and told the landowner, it was discovered that while Ysidro and Maria were praying at mass, an angel was plowing their fields for them.

A Los Poblanos love story

This Los Poblanos love story begins in the most unusual of places, far from our farm in the Rio Grande Valley, in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol. As the 71st Congress was being called into session in March of 1929, two freshman members in the House of Representatives met for the first time: Albert Gallatin Simms of New Mexico and Ruth Hanna McCormick of Illinois.

Gustave Baumann’s whimsical holiday tradition

woodblock print

Of the many New Mexican artists who worked on Los Poblanos Ranch and La Quinta in the 1930s, Gustave Baumann was certainly one of the most esteemed. The beautifully carved wood doors and fireplace mantle at La Quinta are the work of a master at the top of his game. What is perhaps less well known about Baumann, however, is that he had a wonderful sense of humor. And nowhere was this more apparent than in Baumann's annual holiday card tradition.
