Re: where is everyone?

Been without internet connection for a few days.

Weather here has turned frosty. Went to a 9 AM MG orientation yesterday and it took about 10 minutes to de-ice the windshield. Very few trees with leaves left; even the oaks are mostly bare. Lettuce, fava beans, and onions still okay in the garden, but everything else is gone.

Santa Rosa plum is a marvel. One of Mr. Burbank's better inventions.

Out in the garden? Hibernating? Lettuce and radishes are at the eating stage here. Peas are growing strong. Several mahonias have buds ready to pop. Even have one last rose. Making plans to cut back the banana plants soon and use their leaves to help make tamales. Bare root fruit trees will be available in a couple of weeks. I finally decided to get a plum, not a pluot. I just don't have room for 2 trees, and Santa Rosa plums don't need a pollinator.
What is happening in the rest of your gardens?
