There’s a lot going on between all that grows in our NY and Cali gardens and yards. As the growing season on the east coast transitions, we’re going to talk more about what I keep finding, cultivating and harvesting out in the California hill-side that is my yard!As I walk around my hood and surrounding area here in So-Cal, I’m noticing more and more medicinal plants, trees and herbs freely growing right in the front yards. Just today I saw sage, fennel, you-name-it citrus, pomegranates, hibiscus, olives and figs. Tomorrow I’m beginning a fennel transplantation experiment, wish me luck! Back east, Kath is still going to tell us about saving seeds, breaking down the fall garden and how to get ready for next year all before winter slams. In the meantime, you’re going to start getting a flavor for east meets west.
There’s going to be a few holiday guests (be sure to check out my most recent guest, Donna, on getting recreational), a bevy of yum-tastic savory & seasonal recipes, the how-tos you’ve written in about and the introduction of two new contributors, food and travel writer, Shannon Unger and intern and writer, Ali L.!
Thanks for everyone’s recent emails on transplanting my mini-citrus tree. Popular vote is that it is indeed a bonsai tangerine tree! Please continue to send your messages and advice! Feel welcome to leave them smack-dab in the comments section to help out fellow gardeners!
