Just picked! Sapotes, pomegranates, jujubes, and apples, all $5 a bag and available 9 am to 4 pm until they sell out.

Sapotes are a fruit native from Mexico down to Costa Rica. Let them sit on the counter and ripen until they are soft and custard-like inside.

Jujubes are a small fruit from China, with a flavor people compare to an apple. Ripe fruit is brown or green with brown splotches--fruit in these bags are ready to eat.

Coming up on November 28 in Los Angeles County... https://www.facebook.com/events/143654619577357
Online session coming up on September 1. Hope you can join us! https://www.facebook.com/events/1042748062786912/
This album popped up today and I thought ID share.
When you announced your closure I offered to help set up a fully electronic version of your Veggie Palooza - are you interested in doing this so the thousands of plants don’t go to waste?
Whereas I love all the close-ups of flowers and plants, do you have any wide-angle landscape photographs that we could use for backgrounds in Zoom meetings?
Any chance we will see a late spring bloom after the rain, and if May allows it?
I have an idea on how to do the sale virtually... I can set up a simple online shopping cart / form where you can take orders and credit cards and then have pickers gather the orders and place the selected items on numbered trays for pickup. People drive up, verify their order number, grab and go. No human to human contact and all payment done electronically only. Let me know if you're interested.
Is Green Scene still on for April 4-5?
Some photos from my weekly trip to the Arboretum. 😃
Some photos from Sat. spring is here
Found a free solar charging station for all of nature to use.
I buy a 3 foot live christmas tree because I refuse to cut a tree down. I am looking for somewhere in the North Orange County Area where I can now donate it. Can you advise?
