    I love the California Pepper trees! They are drought resistant don't need much water once established and provide shelter, food, a nesting place for wildlife. My horses like to eat them too, it gives them pepper breath! lol The Peruvian pepper trees are the really invasive ones and look a little different apparently take over like crazy. I'm trying to plant some pepper trees, but the rodents took out 6 of the 8 we planted. We have to plant them in pots or wire cloth to get them established so the gophers and ground squirrels can't eat the young roots. But they are one of my favorite trees too. Love all the birds, squirrels, rabbits.. you've created such a useful, beautiful and fun garden. Amazing what a difference the wood chips make.

    leeks are wonderful ,especially in place of onions in a lot of dishes .. I am very partial to leek and potato soup on a cold day 🙂

    Just love how you both provide for the birds 🙂 I am afraid to do that as I'd just be baiting them for my cat. But once she is no longer with me i'll get a small dog and spoil the birds too.
