joy garden

It’s unsettling that California has decided to skip winter. The governor declared a major drought emergency. Accuweather says no rain until February 23. (And apparently there will be “abundant sunshine” on February 14th.)

It’s scary, but the sunshine is also making me want to garden. I will not garden, however! It’s still January.

Gardening is a huge hobby of mine. Last year I grew $1,300 worth of vegetables and fruit in my garden, including 759 lemon cucumbers, 750 tomatoes, 1,226 green beans, 774 blueberries, and 128 zucchini. Here are some pictures of the garden, just because.

What does no rain in winter mean for the garden this year? I don’t know.

Anyway, maybe we’ll still get rain. Maybe it’ll pour all spring. I hope so.

Otherwise, at the very least, I’m looking at a very high water bill this year.

I’m A Master Gardener!

After five-months of practicums, weekly classes, and a grueling 100-question exam, I graduated from the Sonoma County Master Gardener program! Here I am with my … certificate? Degree? Anyway, I’m a Master Gardener now.
