Finally in focus enough to see the crumpled petals

Update: as of September 2015 we are living in Cambridge MA and no longer have our wonderful garden, but I can’t bring myself to delete the rest of this page.  Hopefully, someday soon, when our name is miraculously chosen from the two-year-long wait list for the local community gardens, we will update this page again.  Until then, friends.

This is where I keep track of what vegetables, flowers, and herbs are currently growing in the garden (Sunset zone 24, US zone 10).  For suggestions on what to grow when in southern CA, here is an online planting guide.  Also, the local seed and feed gardening blog.
