    Just Sayin' Hi

    Welcome GottaGo from the SF bay area. I live in Alameda and we too have micro climates all over our little man made island. Fortunately they tend to be warmer ones which we need with our cool weather. Why are your raised beds so high off the ground? I know you are relocating them but even...

    Weather Where You Are

    Steve, for now we need to keep that Pacific moisture to help with our fires. But smoke has been cleared for at least a week so maybe things are getting better or under control. Mary

    October Crazy-Hip Replacement

    It is amazing how fast our bodies heal after a surgery. With BJ's positive attitude and good health, he's going to be up and about by Halloween! Well at least he'll be off that bed. Just make sure he doesn't overdo it and listens to his body. Occasionally I find pieces of pork fat at the...

    From Bubbles to Butterflies (because of Covid-19)

    Welcome! A couple years ago I started a monarch habitat under my Fuyu persimmon tree. I even wrote an article for our local paper on how to start one. Planted different plants that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. There are a pair of hummingbirds that we see each evening zipping from...

    What makes You an "Easy" Gardener?

    Steve, are you calling me a stick-in-the-mud? I don't see myself in that way, haha. Radishes are quick and easy! They're also good in soups to add some crunch. Mary

    Duck's New Ragtag garden, Version 2020

    Oh Ducks, the only reason my garden is neat and tidy is because it's the size of a postage stamp! haha You've done good. Now aren't you proud of yourself? I bet that pasture looks real purdy! Mary

    October Crazy-Hip Replacement

    Wow Bay, getting those cornish hens processed was a huge job that you got done! Good for you. Sometimes I want to be a little bird on your shoulders and spend the day watching you do everything. I love that you have such good neighbors to help each other. My good friend had a knee and hip...

    New to TEG

    Welcome from the SF bay area. This year I decided not to plant a fall garden. I am heavily composting and planting fava beans as a cover crop instead. Need to improve my soil for spring. Mary

    What makes You an "Easy" Gardener?

    Easy for me is having a small garden making it easy to manage. I have 1 4x10 raised bed and 2 4x4 beds and 1 4x7 bed. Since it's right outside the back door, I walk out there and see it numerous times a day. Thus being able to catch any problem early. Of course this excludes catching...
