I live in Long Beach also, and I'm limited to a small front yard. I'm growing garlic in my landlord's lawn, and use Dutch white clover under the roses and orange tree. Summer irrigation is a must, unless you only grow local sages. There are some local permies whose landlord allowed them to build a rainwater cistern in the backyard. I wish!
Email me, or come by 117 1/2 Grand most mornings.
Must go to work now.
I live in Southern California (Long Beach) where we get
about 12-15" of rain yearly. This little rainfall and forced me to
begining to learn to garden differently than when I lived on east
Also, how do you apply fukuoka's technique in your backyard -
especially when it's tiny?
