Surrounded by Fires

By Published On: May 15th, 20140.4 min readCategories: Garden

We’re used to wildfires in San Diego, but they generally occur in late September / early October, not mid-May. It’s been so hot and dry lately that the entire county is a tinderbox. Currently, we’re within a couple of miles of four fires to the north, east, southeast and southwest, so any direction I turn is smoke.

Fortunately, we’re safe. (Wouldn’t want to load all the livestock in a trailer and have to go somewhere.) But wow.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
