The garden is where I find myself outside of the daily grind. It keeps me out of the drudge of a gym, although at times the garden chores can be simply tedious. For this blog category, I explore ways to reduce the drudgery and elevate the joys of gardening. It is also an opportunity to explore the very specific methods of gardening in California's Mediterranean climate. Please feel free to share your gardening experiences with everyone here in the comment section.
