Just a little “after the rain” walk in the Garden

I love the smell outside after it rains.  And now that we’re in a full on drought here in CA, I am ever so much more appreciative of the rain.  Here are a few snapshots from today.

A ladybug on my arugula 🙂  We love ladybugs in our garden just as much as we love earth worms.  By the way, arugula grows really well here in Brentwood.


Italian Romanesca Broccoli.  Seems to be doing well!


Butter Lettuce.  Also thrives well here in Brentwood


Telephone Pole Peas.  These grow tall!  This spring we will be buying a tall trellis to let these go wild because as of now they are taking up a lot of space in our garden bed!
