This week has also brought about changes around the house. I’ve planted so many lettuce, chard, kale, beet, cilantro seeds–all certified Biodynamic from Turtle Tree Seed Company. It’s exciting to put each seed out, to see the different shapes and colors, and then to anticipate the first growths. We also planted 4 citrus trees: lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit. We’ll see how those like this growing area. Many say Paso isn’t good for citrus, but we don’t get regular frost near the house, so I think they’ll be just fine. Our landscaping is in!! Albeit, nothing fancy…just good ole California natives from Las Palitas Nursery in Santa Margarita. I’m thankful and relieved it’s in, another item I can cross off the list and mentally be “done with”. I’ve ordered over 30 fruit and nut trees to plant this January, all heirloom varities from an excellent source right here in Paso Robles, Trees of Antiquity. Next on the list, bees!
