Another beautiful day in paradise

It’s another beautiful day in paradise here in Huntington Beach. Temps are headed to the mid seventies and the sun is shining brightly. I’m still playing with my iPad, can’t seem to put it down. I’m sitting on our deck while blogging, not in my office. Too nice a day to be indoors. Pics below show my snow peas in bloom, oranges and avocados about ready to harvest and broccoli coming along nicely. Can’t say that this is easier than writing on my Dell, but it’s fun.

Garden chores that lie ahead are scooping compost out of the bins from the bottom and putting it into bed three, then planting red cabbage.

About Lou Murray, Ph.D.

I'm a retired medical researcher, retired professional writer/photographer, avid gardener, and active environmentalist living in southern California. I wrote a weekly newspaper column on environmental topics in the Huntington Beach Independent for many years. I also supervised environmental restoration projects and taught at the Orange County Conservation Corps before retiring in the summer of 2016. This blog chronicles my efforts to live a green life growing as much food as possible for my husband and myself on a 4,500 sq ft yard that is covered mainly by house, garage, driveway, and sidewalks. I am also dedicated to combatting global climate change.
