Zone 9 Planting Schedule - MINE! Southern California. I like how it shows when to plant and when to expect to harvest. Also, I like the summer break, since I have stuff growing this summer, and it's impossible to keep it green!
These are four of my favorite California native plants. They're drought tolerant and will grow well in the increasingly warm and dry Southern California garden. For more info: http://www.bhg.com/gardening/gardening-by-region/southern-california/
Queen’s wreath vine (Antigonon leptopus) is a rapid grower, is drought tolerant once established and thrives in exposures with full, even reflected, sun. This North American native is perfect for the dry climates of California and the desert Southwest, but its vigorous growth can cause it to become invasive in warm, humid climates where water is plentiful.
Buttery Grits with Jalapeno Chorizo and Smokey Shrimp This Shrimp and Grits recipe may be my favorite meal of all time! Growing up in the south, I ate grits daily. I'm obsessed. After moving to California, I found a fusion that combines my love of SoCal and Southern.
Since today is Father's Day, I thought I would dedicate this entry to my father, Paul. Growing up, I watched my dad restore and judge Corvettes. It was his influence that made me a stickler about taking care of my car. He still asks me, "How's your chariot doing?" I always have people say to me
