Re: Hola

Everything's cool with the time, Judy; I seem to have adjusted to time zone changes with minimum trouble. And to the temperature changes, also. Like an idiot, however, I didn't accessibly pack any shoes or socks, so when I got here all I had was sandals. But even that wasn't too bad; I didn't freeze.

For the garden, my sister has started a number of vegetables that are now up--peas, potatoes, lettuce, spinach, and such. She has them growing in raised beds and barrels/tubs. She wants to build some more raised beds for vegetables, so that's probably what we'll do next. Both the apricot and cherry trees have set fruit--the cherry is still blooming, but fading. There is a long empty bed along one side of the house that we've talked about as an ideal area for blueberries, gooseberries, and currents--so you can see that edible landscaping is much on our agenda. She also wants to spot parsley and other herbs in the flower beds.

Among the non-edibles, the ceanothus and rhododendrons are loaded with buds; the tulips, daffodils, and muscari are almost spent. We plan to move the Meyer lemon out of the greenhouse tomorrow, but we plucked one of the lemons off it for our grilled salmon a couple of days ago.

How are you doing on Pacific Daylight time? Driving was probably easier than flying as far as getting your internal clock rest. How are you doing with the climate? Let us know when you are ready for some garden goodies. Gorgeous day here so of course I was at work. Tomorrow Tuesday we start planting our hedge. Hicks Yew, a couple blueberries & maybe a couple Arbor Vitae for instant screen. They're cheap & tall & we can chop them out when the Yew gets some height. No local source for Bamboo, so will probably not use any there.

Well, I'm finally back to normal, more or less. Comcast guy left a bit ago after giving me net access and my sister created my mail account, and I figured out how to get that into my mail box. I just sent Chris an email to join the chat list at this address, so as soon as that clears, I'll send this. Anyway, it's good to be back.
