From dedicated gardener & commentor Scout211:
Late November is a time here in rural NorCal when it seems like things start come alive again after the long, dry, hot summer. The dry, brown grasses start to grow again and turn green, some showy plants come alive and the fall citrus trees start to produce. And my vegetable garden can finally tolerate cooler weather veggies.
Summers are too hot for growing salad greens so I get excited for fall when I can grow them again. Last fall I planted one raised bed with greens and it never seemed to be enough for us. This year I planted two raised beds of various greens. So of course this year we have bags of greens filling up our refrigerator. I am not complaining, though. Here are my beds full of ready-to-pick greens. In late November!
The next pic is a close-up of our strawberry tree. I actually thought we had a strawberry bush but after I looked it up, it looks like it’s a strawberry tree. Arbutus unedo (I think). They are colorful and kind of fun looking. The fully ripe ones are actually edible but we leave them for the birds.
It’s citrus time!
