Welcome Spring!

We put out a wreath we had in Encinitas, but it's dark purple color scheme got lost on our black door. We decided it was time to replace it, but couldn't find anything decent that wasn't outrageously expensive. So we bought some silk flowers and created our own. Yeah, I'd say the color pops on the black background

Jeffery's been bitten by a gardening bug. Take a look at his square foot gardening adventure! We looked high and low to find the same variety of orange cherry tomatoes that our neighbor in San Diego introduced to us. (He doesn't like other cherry tomatoes, only this "Sugar Sweet" variety.) Tomatoes and peppers were the only seedlings we bought, the rest are from seed: peas, cucumbers, butternut squash, beans, red potatoes, sweet peas, green onions, cilantro, beets, carrots, spinach, and lettuce. The red potatoes in the middle box have really taken off. Soon we will hang netting on the galvanized frame for the sweet peas, beans and peas to climb on.
