San Francisco bay area end of summer update.


By stan510


End of summer does not mean end of warm. That happens in the end of November.
Well folks,it did turn out to be a warmer than average summer after a terrible May. I’m seeing some great growth out of the more tropical plants I have.
We even had a monsoon rains on the 11th of September.
Plants I moved seem to have rooted in and the summer had many subtractions as I removed Yucca aloifolia,Agave americana, cut to a stump a Tree Euphorbia,removed another tree Euphorbia totally. A large old Brugmansia was removed…brightening my small backyard.
This is the first year since I planted a small Mango in 2012,that I can truly call it a tree. A small tree..but you can walk under it!
A pretty good summer.
