It is 1pm and 110F-ish. I'm hiding in the shade of a rock lip in Vasquez Park. I missed the desert. This post written before I cooked under the heat of the sun.
Plants really enjoy sunlight - some more so than others. When you're planting a plant outdoors, it's useful to know what 'Full Sun' means on the seed packet, and whether your corner of the balcony or yard is going to get it. Find out where to look up the sun's angles and how to apply it!
Have you ever come across a plant in the wild that you couldn't identify? An app called iNaturalist may be the easiest way to put a name to a leaf. Join me in a walkthrough of making an observation as I try to identify a strange plant on the coast.
