05:00 am: Water, water everywhere
The rain has been pretty heavy this past week. The most recent storm turned most of my back yard into a swamp. This makes for a lot of muddy doggy footprints on my floor.

I went to my local nursery a couple weeks ago and asked if they carried any dwarf avocado trees. The staff had never heard of such a thing. I went back this weekend, and they had gotten a bunch in stock. They must have looked them up and ordered them after my previous visit. I picked up one of those, plus a 4-in-1 grafted almond tree to try out in my yard.

Next weekend I'll start the seeds for my summer transplantable crops, mainly squash and cucumber.

Another promising piece of news is that I may have found a contractor to do my bathroom renovation project. He's a friend of one of my neighbors. He responded quickly when I called and returned a reasonable estimate. I just have to get a good estimate from his plumber, and I should be all set. If I'm lucky, the project could get started next month.

Go you on the renovation project! I'd love to see your almond tree in bloom, I think those plants are so lovely.

Thanks! If the almond blooms this year, I'll try to get a good picture of it.
