We’re done in the orchards, at least for a month or so. The cover crop is growing, aided by the prodigious rains falling all along the central coast. There’s water in the creek, earthworms burrowing their merry way through nutrient-rich organic soil, and a whole host of birds carefully picking through the fields and brushlands for tasty bugs…maybe even other birds if one of our resident raptors makes an appearance.
It’s quiet for now, but we’re figuring figures and making plans and putting everything in order to bring fresh Molino Creek produce to the hands, mouths, and cookpots of the community again come spring.
Something to muse on ’til then…
