The seasons are always a bit wonky here in Southern California, so I present these two things which would be considered strange to nearly everyone else in the US at this time of year — seedlings and roses. The kale seedlings need to be started now as kale, and many other leaf crops, will bolt to seed as soon as the temperatures rise. I’ll try to get a better shot of the seedling when they aren’t in the shade. I only remembered to grab this one when I cam home from school pickup.

The roses are rejoicing, I think, with the new sunlight available now that a pine tree was removed along the southern property line. They are still shaded quite a bit, but not nearly as much as they were before.
