Sights of Spring...

The most wonderful thing about needing to do a second Spring post is that, despite a couple of weeks of high pressure, for the most part we've had an actual Spring this year!

Rain continues to fall periodically--we're now up to 40.63" ytd--and temps remain in the low 70's. Our annuals are all planted out and have had plenty of time to get their roots established. None of the trees have been irrigated yet, besides for fertigation purposes.

The last rounds of citrus are still trickling in, and many trees are already laden with a very heavy set of nubbin fruit. Our avocados are sizing up and are likewise copious from last year's dry spring. Mostly, our world is in bloom right now. We sure do enjoy the show!
