MAY 30 2018:  We have been eating salads picked from our gardens for months now!  Kale, spinach, lettuce, arugula, parsley, miner's lettuce, etc. Such a joy to live in this climate! My flowers are a riot of color.  Life is so good here.  We had a visit from Rosemary, Steve, and kids.  Had a blast.  I watch the unfolding lava crisis on the big island of HI.  So sad.
