Well Close to Operational

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The well we’ve dug has been at the center of a continuing saga for us, and we are thrilled to say we are stepping this week into a new chapter. Everything is installed, pump, wiring, etc. We’re now ready to ask the County of San Diego for an inspection. Once our installation is approved, we can go to SDGE and get the line connected. Since the heat is here now, and the line isn’t live, we’ll probably still be way over our water use allotment this coming month and will be forced to pay the whopper overuse fine from Metropolitan Water District.

Blackberries are coming!

By | Uncategorized | 2 Comments

Great news for berry lovers! Just when the meager mulberry crop is coming to an end, blackberries are beginning to arrive to bolster our spirits and remind us that summer has arrived! You’ll see them first, starting next week when there’s enough to pick for every basket. A week early, I might add!

Tomatoes may be in as soon as next week, as well!
