While many of the Hollywood "perks" of living in California simply aren't true...it IS true that we have sunshine most days and, at least for those of us who live in the flatlands, we have the unique ability to have fresh produce in our gardens year round. Even in February, which I know for many parts of the Northern Hemisphere is blistering cold and sparkling white, we can grow root veggies, lettuce, beans, peas, citrus, broccoli, and cauliflower. There are more winter offerings but these are the first that come to mind.
This afternoon, Chris and I ventured into my parent's garden and were awed by the post-rain beauty and magnificence of Northern California's bounty.
