Well it is nice now but in the summer it gets horrible hot. Rain? Nope not much. some years we see 1 inch a year. So we have a big water shortage. Like today I got some water to water my garden. I have 3 large water well like containers as I have a huge house and a humongous garden.
If the FDA could see my garden, they would shut me down as I harvest everything from fig leaves to my new passion of drying up grapefruit leaves. I have tons of olive trees, grapefruit, grapes, lemons, toot (blackberry type) and more. I then have a huge garden in front of my house full of vegetables and herbs along with my roses and rosemary tree.
