Our azaleas were a month late this year. I posted a lot of pics of the cold damage, we got hammered up here. One of my nanas, I didn't think would make it, I hacked it off with a chainsaw about 6" from the ground, was nasty wet and slimy, damned if it didn't come back.

Early on I planted some basil, didn't think it would come up, but it eventually did. And a few stray portulaca too!

Our norfolk island pines didn't do so hot, they don't come back, just stay dead looking, but the tree is alive.

I don't know what this is, or if I planted it, it seems to be perennial and has interesting flowers that are very hard to keep in focus. Right now it is in berry mode.

I had planned to clean up the side where the nana lives and put the whole urban garden in, but I didn't get too far. I did clean up a ton of junk. I wanted to fence it in, but it is so hard to grow anything here. The sun is brutal, you have to put water on every day. Then you have fungus, and nematodes to deal with. They took vapam off the market, and you can't buy bromide like the farmers use to sterilize the soil. Fuck organic farming here, you lose every time! Maybe some day....
This is what we have to deal with!
