Munch, munch, almost gone. What a mild taste compared to white cauliflower from the store. I will increase the planting next winter. Eliminate Russian Kale and plant this. I have plenty of curly kale. Eliminate green Swiss chard and grow only Bright lights.

So far 1.1" of rain in the gauge with more expected Tuesday. bounce

Sad  Some of the coastal Redwoods and Giant Sequoias are 2,000 years old.

Today, we ended with 1.8"

I was raised up in the Sequoias.  They were saying our trees were 2,000 years old when I was a child.  They must be at least 2050 by now.    Smile  (I just don't understand why some people call me a smart-aleck!)

We ended with bupkas.  It was supposed to start raining here again at 7 pm, but I haven't seen anything yet.   Sad

I think it is amazing how they have survived forest fires for so many years. It wasn't until Smokey the Bear prevented forest fires that the fires became so hot they were hurtful.

I keep meaning to get myself a large map of Canada and the United States and stick pins in it to show where our members are living.
We're on a ridge, so we never have to worry about actual flooding, but we aren't the highest property here, and our land slopes a little, so "a river runs through it" when we get this much rain. Unfortunately, my "Salad Bar" is right in the path of the water flow, so I won't be able to get to my garden until at least 2 days after the rain stops. The greenhouse is in the same path, so I won't be going in there for a while, either. Sad We also had some big branches fall in the high winds, but no damage done, so we'll just chop them up for kindling.

January 18 and still on garden vacation. Cut some parsley and cilantro for drying, Russian kale because it was over-grown, and mixed lettuce for a salad tonight. Oh, and fed the worm tubes. We should be having rain off and on for a week. They only thing started for this summer are sweet potato slips as they take a while to sprout and get roots. I'll plan on starting the seedlings for everything else around Valentine's Day.

Listening to the rain.
Looking out the window at the rain.
Checking the weather report to see when the rain will stop (4 more days Sad).
Wondering how much longer I can put up with wet cats and stir-crazy dry ones. Mad

We had that problem in Oregon. Got a neat tool that you step on and it pulls them out by the roots. Then I composted the plants. That probably spread the seeds, but if they sprout in a garden bed, it's easy to pull them out when they're little.

Here, in our hot, dry summers, weed control is easy. We just don't water where we don't want them and they die of neglect. Razz
