Random thoughts about my gardening and beekeeping experiences in Northern California's El Dorado County.

1 month into it
well - post #2 for 2013 is in the books. i just doubled last years production. how's that for setting a low bar?
all is well in the garden - no failures. tomatoes are finally seeing some sets. we have had quite a range of weather over the last month - from 37 degree morning temps to 105 this weekend; the fact that all is well, is indeed a miracle.
this years menu is a bit more limited than in previous years. only ten tomato plants.
yep - thats right only ten. and that is from the guy who planted 41 plants 4 years ago. i also did away with beans, radish, corn, melons. its not that i didnt enjoy them, but rarely got to the garden to pick them when ready.
so this year i decided to be a better judge of what i could do, save some water and effort and hopefully still have a good year.
