Renee and Mike's Dump

Hosenemesis in Simi Valley, CA

A skinny one-third acre in the suburbs, Sunset Zone 19, USDA 8b/9, Southern California. I have been working on the yard since 1989, when I was a starving student. In 2000 Mike and I married, and the yard became a garden. We do everything the hard way.
