What a difference a couple of weeks make

By Published On: March 27th, 20150.6 min readCategories: Garden

We pretty much had a non-winter here in San Diego which allowed me to get a lot of things in the ground well before normal. By January of this year I had lettuce, cilantro, onions, snow peas, broccoli and cauliflower all planted. Normally I can’t do that until early March because sudden frost snaps kill everything.

This year, however, aside from a gopher taking our most of my cauliflower, everything else did absolutely splendidly through the winter months. We’re currently eating all of the above and I’ve already got corn, peppers, tomatoes, squash and cucumbers lined up in pots ready to be planted. Hopefully this year is better than the mixed one I had last year.

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.
