So glad everyone is safe. So far, California has been the driest fall and winter in history, so finally a bit of rain has arrived. There is no telling if it will be enough. We understand that the feds will not be releasing any water to us, so if your fruits and veggies have higher prices...this is why.

At least some of us will be able to grow our own. We have a good, deep well, but most are not that fortunate. Still, we do not waste water on lawns or anything like that. We just mow the weeds until they dry out in late spring-early summer.

The veggies have to be grown in a fenced area. I have learned that the hard way, as the deer here are voracious. Also the moles, voles and gophers. I have 9 "Square Foot Gardens", which are mainly filled with veggies during spring and summer, but I usually reserve at least one bed for flowers. I love them so. I appreciate the fact that I am retired now and have the time to devote to gardening...and growing plants from seed. I also appreciate all of you here, as where else could we find so many friends that like to grow plants from seed in our community?

I went to a few "Foothill Garden Club" meetings in my area. Many members don't even have a garden. Even fewer of them ever start anything from seed. they go to socialize. Oh yeah, and have a few charity events. Does anyone here have a REAL garden club? (Well besides Cubits, DG, GW and ATP?) I mean in your area.???
