Mysterious Mushrooms

Found about 5 of these funky mushrooms in the garden today.

Maybe they are fungus. Here's another example.

Plum blossoms and a light dusting

The neighbor's plum tree is fully blooming right now. It's about 30 feet tall.

When the petals fall off it looks like we got a light dusting of snow.

Dehydrating Oregano

I dry oregano to use when cooking. It's one of those herbs that I think is more diverse when it is dried. This is the before drying photo.

And after 30 hours in the dehydrator.

Week 2 of my edible gardening class

I'm taking a class from Common Ground in Palo Alto on Edible gardening. There are 5 classes that take place over 5 months. This is the demonstration garden on week 2.

We started the class at the store/classroom and then went to the garden to see a double-digging demonstration.

Photo of the cold frame with flats of oats, beets and jerulseum artichokes. There are lots of great classes to take at Common Ground, take a look at the upcoming class list.
