Pasta dough is hard. I think you run the risk of burning out the motor on your mixer.

Thanks for your comments. Good luck with your garden. -PlanterTomato
Hi Thanks for the comment. I checked and you are probably right. The altitude at the airport is 5400. I dont know the city at all and its probably true that most folks live at that about that elevation. According the Wikipedia the elevation of the city has a large range and some parts would be 10 min and others 15. Thanks for fact checking. Albuquerque has one of the highest elevations of any major city in the United States, though the effects of this are greatly tempered by its southwesterly continental position. The elevation of the city ranges from4,900feet(1,490m)above sea level near the Rio Grande (in the Valley) to over6,700feet(1,950m)in the foothill areas of Sandia Heights and Glenwood Hills. At the airport, the elevation is5,352feet(1,631m)above sea level.
You might also want to consider givingStupice (pronounced Stew-Peach-eh) a try. Its a small, red heirloom from Czechoslovakia. Thanks for your comments!

This looks like a mistake on my part. Gasp! The original Latin phrase is ubi mei, ibi apes - where there is honey there are bees. I inverted the expression because I wanted to make it where there are bees there is honey but it looks like I substituted a second ubi where it should have been an ibi. I dont know Latin, but if you know some one who does, please forward to them and see if we can clear this up. Then Ill make the change to the template and repost.
Hi Michaele: Hmmm... hadnt thought of drying peas, but why not. Ill give it a shot. You may have noticed that Im a little behind in my blog postings. I left the company I was working for and have created a company to sell unique urban farming products. My first product is a patent pending item I developed for the backyard chicken keepers. If you have a small flock, it may be of interest to you. Ill launch the product in the next month and will post it to my blog as part of a broader marketing effort. Good luck with your garden. -Mark
