The warm season extends well into October here in San Diego, so I’ve still got plenty of time for a second round of summer veggies, some of which have already been transplanted (like the sweet peppers you can see under the burlap shade cloth) and others (sweet corn, tomatoes and beans) that are waiting in the greenhouse for their turn in the beds.

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.
