Linley Dixon and her 2-year-old daughter, Raina, look for strawberries Wednesday in hanging pots in the greenhouse at Adobe House Farm north of Durango. Dixon, who grows a variety of plants on the one-third acre property, has been working the land using organic practices for the last two years. She is fond of saying “Tryin’ to make a livin’ off the third.”
