Our backyard is officially the most fertile plot of land in the world. I sprayed with a “kill everything” weed killer last week, and it killed only most of the weeds. In their place, grew more weeds. I also found a young cactus, a giant sequoia sapling, a shnozberry bush, and some water lillies in the more damp spots. If only I could do a controlled burn. Does the fire department do that kind of thing?
Also, don’t ever eat at El Torito on Tulare St. It made 7 of our 8 people sick today. Unfortunately, I’m not the 1 out of 8 that didn’t feel the effects.
