This was supposed to have been the afternoon of our first-ever almond bloom party. Instead, we cancelled due to weather and we’re now awaiting "the big storm", version 3. They’re calling for sustained winds during the night of 40 mph with gusts to 60 and 70…after the big January storm, it’s hard to see what else could happen.

Today this farmer is stuck home sick. Too much on my mind, no wherewithal to do much about it. The greenhouse is in great shape. My new seedling heat mats arrived (shipped from New York, manufactured in Petaluma, CA….more on that later) so all I have to do is feel well enough to sit down in there and plant seeds in the trays.
