Fall Planting

I did some of the fall garden planting over the weekend.

Collards, Swiss Rainbow Chard and Mustard Greens.

It's really nice to be able to walk outside and harvest a bit of dinner.

The dark green leafy vegetables are a rich source of minerals (including iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium) and vitamins, including vitamins K, C, E, and many of the B vitamins. 

Easy to grow too, if I can do it, you can too! Trust me on this

Some more south swell over the weekend but I am getting tired of the side shore south winds.

Anyone know when the morning offshore winds will start up again?

I can deal with the chilly water and winds if the waves are groomed to look like this!

I like to try out the winter gear before it's necessary just to make sure there isn't anything that needs repair etc.

Since I wore my winter 3/2 wetsuit all summer it was just a matter of trying out the hood.

A comfortable hood is a great thing on a cold or windy morning.  You loose a lot of heat out of your head so it's a good thing to keep warm.

In SoCal it's seen as goofy and uncool to wear a hood (and it is) but nothing keeps you warmer then a decent hood. Remember the autumnal equinox is just a few days away! 

A couple of cool things to check out on the web


See you around the next bend in the trail.
