I was poking around the back yard and just discovered that what I thought was several sunflowers in bloom is actually just a single 7-bloom monster, and there are a couple more blooms coming out, assuming I start watering it myself. We've had the wettest spring I can recall since moving here 12 years ago. We might have passed 20 inches since last October-ish, while the 18 months prior to that our neighborhood totaled just 3 inches. Average is around 10-11 inches per year, so this has been nice. My finicky avocado is fruiting in year 2, although it might be best to remove them so it focuses on more growth; the dwarf peach is covered in fruits, if I keep it watered the birds should get a delicious harvest!
I'm not quite a lumberjack, but that's OK, I sleep all night and I dream all day; I'll coppice trees, I'll grow my food, and compost poo and pee! With a well and off-grid solar, it's a permies life for me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FshU58nI0Ts
