“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”
My vegetable and flower seeds are up! I go out many times a day to check on their progress.
I have no real idea what I’m doing, but gardening friends will help. Venturing into an area about which I know so little makes me feel quite vulnerable. What will happen if I “fail!” Will the plants think I’m lame and make fun of me?
Of course I’ve read up a bit, and I have purchased the Sunset Western Gardening Book, but my sense is that gardening is like cooking: you simply have to venture forth, and get a feel, and make mistakes and have triumphs and that is how you learn.
It’s difficult to describe the rush of hope, exhilaration and excitement that comes from planting a seed and seeing a single green shoot poking its head above ground.

Our back yard has lemon, cherry, persimmon, pomegranate, olive, avocado and black walnut trees, plus a huge wild stand of rosemary.
The cherry trees are just coming into bloom.
