we visited dog island farm in vallejo to get some heirloom tomato starts. the good folks there sell inexpensive heirloom starts that they've tested in our climate. ran into a neighbor there at dog island.
we hauled soil to our house with the help of a new awesome vallejoan friend's truck. same new friend is bringing us bees she'll keep in our yard (a story for another post).
we built four planter boxes with the help of another new vallejoan friend, with tools from two different neighbors.
at mid city nursery where we went to get veggie starts, we met an enthusiastic fruit tree expert who is going to come to our house and assess our yard's fruit tree growing potential.
it takes a village to start a garden! at least when we are doing it. :-)
we've met so many friendly people since moving here. it has taken me by surprise, this friendliness, this eagerness to connect, and it has made me happy and grateful to call vallejo home.

california rising by friends eric and annie at three fish studios. also in multiple papers!
california knows that immigrants feed america
and that we need to protect trans kids
everyone should see this photo by emilio morenatti. refugees are fleeing their beloved countries because their lives are threatened. they are in pain and have faced terrifying journeys. we should be embracing them, not shutting them out.
