As we do need it, it's hard to complain, but it's raining again. We have had the mighty Pacific storms that I remember lately and hopefully this will end up being a non-drought year. Some of the wildflowers are starting to peek out , like wild radish and I will go to the Redwoods this weekend to find more. I need to harvest Nettles. I am on a kick to boost my immune system and dodge the ever-present cold cycle. I bought some seeds ( Seeds of Change) from Lumberman's? the store on River street in Santa Cruz. They have practically the whole catalogue right on the wall there and seemingly less expensive. I bought carrots and beets and arugula and red cabbage ( purple really), peas and nigella aka love-in-the mist, one of my favorite flowers ever. I will try to grow some stuff on Orlando's plot in Pescadero.
I need to grow out all of the seeds that I have been carrying around for years, so I hope he'll let me use a few rows.
