Year-round I’m filled with gratitude for living in such a beautiful place. I feel lucky, don’t you?  Plus, after33 years working for hospice, I realize just being alive and well is a big deal. Getting to live in Forestville is icing on the cake. I’m sad though that our national holiday for gratitude seems more about eating a lot and getting good deals on stuff we, or our friends and relatives, may or may not need.  It’s like we’re stuffing our stomachs first, then stuffing our egos (acquiring stuff) but not so much feeding our souls these days.

Back when we were ONLY considering drought-tolerant landscaping to use less water in our gardens, we found many plants with high oil content that set in deep tap roots so required less watering. Some of those plants also tend to burst into flames because of the high oil content. What’s a gardener to do?

I’ve got a great idea for you. Kick off summertime in Forestville by coming to the4th of July Farmer’s Market. Think pig roast, beer and wine, yummy food and bands! Joy Ride plays from 12-3, then Dog Gone Honey’s from 3-7 pm. Bring enough money to buy the usual fresh produce, gourmet olive oils, breads, crafts and treats.
