    Wow! Was at community garden Alhambra this Thursday w/ gusting winds threatening to blow over my 30 ft trellis & me on bike(I’m & it is OK !), then had to postpone erecting my garden neighbors trellis & secure her climbing yellow rose w/ stakes & rope so wouldn’t snap to a stubby stump. Thankfully rose & beautiful yellow blooms survived NorthWest winds to climb trellis hopefully this next weekend. It also rained this Sunday 4am w/ lightening & thunder but still need much more in southern California. Must all pray for the Lord to bless us w/ percipitation :).

    Keep on Gardening the Planet Organic all.
