Yesterday it was a beautiful 71 degrees in Southern California. Took advantage of the day and planted seeds, placed in greenhouse for this years garden.

Does anybody know what kind of squash this is? Orange skin and flesh, shaped like butternut but only 4-5 inches in length and skin is not tan like butternut. Originally started green with yellow streaks prior to turning orange.

Before the rain hits we harvested quite a bit from the garden today: many tomatoes, tomatillos, beautiful beets, serranos and green bell peppers.

Spring is coming! First bloom of the season, beautiful Iris. Gorgeous peach tree blooming in my neighbors yard that I am lucky to have a view of. So happy!

All though it is coming in more slowly I am so happy with what the garden is providing mid-September.

4 trays of Thyme in the dehydrator to enjoy in my cooking throughout the year. I have so much that I am thinking some of my foodie friends will get some as x-mas gifts. Yum!

All of these tomatoes turned into 12 pint cans for later use. Whew! I forgot what a process this is. Happy to be done.
