We are getting very light frosts almost every night now here in the Sonoran desert, but the days are in the 60‘s and 70‘s.  It has been a mild winter so far and we are grateful for that, after several very cold winters (for here) with successive nights in the 20’s.

Photo, left: Our winter garden is doing well this year. Lots of young kale, lettuce, collards, beets and other winter vegetables are coming along, as well as a Punta Banda tomato that’s been producing since last summer.

Photo, right: Jeff is pruning the apricot tree that’s inside the vegetable garden cage. There are twelve apple and stone fruit trees in the enclosure, so he’s got his work cut out! We need to get  them pruned before bud break, which could be in February.
