This may be a premature introduction, but say hello to the only cherry tree that survived my collection of foodie paradise plantings my kids selected, dug holes for, then helped plant. I remember this gem of a beauty when it was just a three foot, dried up twig thinner than the circumference of my pinkie finger. It's a survivor of the flash flood and needs a new cherry tree family to keep it company.

Say hello to the last McIntosh apple tree that I own. It also did that curious slow lean I previously talked about, tipping all the way to the ground... I'm trying to figure out a way to save it because my kids and I are really fond of that tree. It was also a twiglet we planted right next to the cherry tree I introduced you to. It is located down field approximately 380 feet off of Bloody Bucket Road. The flowering Georgia peach, other orange, cherry and apple trees are all gone. If I can get this one to stand up with the chains and my Dad's tractor, I'll feel better about all that waste going on in the grove behind it... I need to clear the debris from the ground and selectively replant back there. That is our personal, private playground. A lovely camp ground I'm looking to redesign into something useful, full of beautiful eye candy and pretty, tastey fruit trees. Talking to Dad about doing a section in Bamboo because they mature in two years...

Which came first?

Enter at your own risk… I see this warning daily as we deal with the aftermath of the wild fire disaster. Normally, on a sunny California morning, I'd be itching to go jogging down a country lane to soak in the sun and enjoy the view… Instead,… more

All American Red Cross (ARC) disaster assistance is free… Considering what it takes to get the job done, I find that fact truly remarkable. It is probably why I enjoy being a cog in their corporate, non-profit wheel. Wearing the Red Cross… more
