Summer took a final bow in late November (91°F on Nov. 21!) and quickly exited stage left. It’s raining now and temperatures are 40° cooler than just a few days ago, leading to a nice crackling fire. Someone cue Winter, stage right.

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.
