  1. January 28th in a California Garden

    by , 01-28-2011 at 11:27 PM
    Not much going on this week. The citrus continues to perform well, with the blood oranges and lemons in the lead, and the navel oranges and grapefruit trailing a bit. Everything else is still dormant, waiting for the weather to get just a little bit warmer before busting out.

  3. Road Map for the Day - January 28, 2011

    by , 01-28-2011 at 09:22 AM
    Recovering from "something," not sure if it was food-poisoning or a 24-hour bug, but yesterday was pretty much a total write-off.

    Today, I am still weak and a little dizzy, so I am going to have to take it easy.

    Okay, I am a few days behind on posting this, because I was looking for a second receipt (stopped at two stores) and I have been unsuccessful at finding it. So I am going to have to just list what I bought at the second store, without prices. The total at the second store was $30.76.

    10 lb bag of white sugar $7.79
    4 gallons water ($1/ea) $4.40
    Spray starch $2.69
    Half and Half (1 pint and 1 qt) $3.48
    Cottage cheese $3.99
