Happy Monday! I got a nice start today with an hour in the garden. Things are going crazy out there with the promised of more to come as we go into August. Here’s some miscellaneous stuff to read this week.
San Diego County has six major climate zones which is important to know when you are planting. The San Diego County Water Authority breaks down the different zones to help guide you in your planting choices to manage your water resources efficiently and grow plants that are suited well to your environment. WIthin these climate ranges are microclimates, more specific to conditions of a particular location. A good example of this might be living in a valley or on a hillside where wind and sun might be variables dramatic enough to create different growing environments with a a climate zone.
I have always been fascinated with historic ephemera. The links below are a collection of pictures or drawings of fruit, herbs and other miscellaneous flora from a century ago or older. It’s Monday and a little decompression is always in order. These images should help. Enjoy!
