Back home!

I was out of town for 3 weeks so not too much was going on in the garden. Juna helped care for the garden in my absence--watering, weeding, adding soil, harvesting.

Had a good day today. Rodney fed all the fruit trees in front with Fish Emulsion and iron. Then he pruned one of the overgrown lavender plants. Still need to prune the other lavender and two rosemary plants. He also pulled out two bougainvillea plants on the hillside. I am going to use that area for fruit trees. I will probably transplant the plum and lemon trees on the south side of the house.

Two new gardeners today--Dasha and Rubie. They helped Juna clean up the whole hillside of pine needles, pine cones, roots, etc. Then we worked on the main two gardens. I pulled up all the stakes and thread marking the rows. Pulled out all the radishes and broccoli that never quite matured. Harvested spinach, Batavian endive, Royal Oak leaf lettuce, peas, green onions, kale, mint and rosemary.

It was a warm and wonderful day! Will start planting the seeds for the garden in the next few days.
