Frost formed on the Scotch Moss this morning. Thank goodness. More freezing weather is good for the fruit trees. Well, not so good for the citrus trees. Citrus is covered on super cold nights (in the 20s) using a beach umbrella draped in plastic. It’s easy up and easy down.
Now that the freezer door is open, California needs some moisture in the form of snow up in the high Sierras. Many are getting nervous that the hopes of another bountiful water year will be dashed. I’m hopeful but practical. The garden is equipped with water saving irrigation. Nothing radical – just practical. I’m ready either way.
You know I’m just happy to not be wearing swamp pants. And that’s the truth.
