Doesn’t it just figure… I’m not planning on putting in any new strawberries this year and there are actually organic strawberry crowns out there… sigh.
Wow, it looks like Harmony Farm Supply (I noticed last time I was there that it’s now Harmony Farm Supply and Nursery) has taken over Cameron & Cameron, which is at River Road and Fulton in northern Santa Rosa. It’s on the way to Shone Farm, which is Santa Rosa Junior College’s farm. I took classes there for two years, so I drove by this place pretty often. They were one of 2 places in the county that had organic straw bales (rice has never worked well for my compost, btw). I guess that this lot and the one next door both burned.
Yesterday was my first trip up to that area since the fires in October. The fire came through this area the first night and day (Oct 7-8, iirc). A friend of mine was driving home from Fort Bragg that day and was on the phone with me for quite a while as they had to take side streets through the fire zone and smoke. This time we were going to a birthday party, and we stopped for a brief hike in the redwoods – my first time visiting Armstrong Woods. Hopefully I will post photos to flickr soon.
