THINKING SPRING, Wild Plum in full bloom The Wild Plum is in full bloom. Today’s rain is nature’s way of thinning future fruit set. Just returned from L.A.Farmer in the Classroom program. We served blood & naval oranges with kale buds, baby beet greens and mint. All 200 children loved the fresh treats and learning about how their bodies benefit from natures’ bounty of vitamins and minerals. They were curious about the snow capped mountains providing water for our farm and eager to help save water, by turning off the faucet!
