After the muscle aching work of digging up rocks, turning soil, and incorporating mulch, my little plot of dirt lay fallow for five months. Perhaps I was too nervous to plant anything knowing that there was a good chance that half my crops would die.
Fortunately, Southern California's mild weather is forgiving to dawdling farmers. You can plant at any time. Last week, my husband and I finally planted the seeds. I'm just waiting to see what happens. And I remember to water sometimes.

I was afraid that I would water the wrong places!
