Fall is rolling in with fits and starts, and many of us are feeling a draw to turn inward. Like yarrow ready for deadheading, I’m feeling ready for rejuvenation, and many of you probably are too. With visions of garden grown butternut pies and freshly harvested tulsi tea, we all want a little more comfort and a little less to do.

It’s that time of year again….weed season. There are tender little weedy greens popping up all over my garden, and probably yours too. For most of us, these little bursts of life just look like one more entry on a nagging to-do list building up for spring….reorganize the attic, dust the baseboards, pull the weeds.

Even before the fires, oaks needed help. Populations have been in decline with seedlings and young trees nearly absent. The number of oaks killed by the fires is not known, but it is clear that many have died.

COMPOST: Technically speaking, compost is organic matter that has decomposed. The easiest way to make compost is to pile up garden refuse (plus kitchen vegetable and fruit scraps if you’re inclined) then wait a year.

Many people have asked me, “How have the birds done in the fires? What did they do?” This is a very complicated question. There are many different species of birds and they each have their unique adaptations to different environments. However, fire isn’t anything new that birds and other wildlife have not encountered in the past.

2017-10-25Oct 25, 2017

With all the fires, I’m very nervous about toxic stormwater runoff and large scale erosion. There are huge areas of denuded soil, as well as a lot of toxic ash which could lead to a pretty nasty situation in our waterways.
