Living in the middle of the Inland Empire of California is an interesting place to be. I have an entire garden full of plans and dreams. My this year plan is to get all the beds dug out and framed so I can take advantage of the fairly mild winters. I already have most of my medicinal herbs in (Feverfew, Stevia, Aloe Vera, I lost my Valerian, so will try again.) and I have quite a few of my kitchen herbs, and edibles in for the year. MAN, does Japanese Cucumber like to climb. So I guess my big thing is growing and eating what we grow, I'm presently on the quest for the perfect Tomato Sauce and Paste canning recipes.
