Back in October of 2016, we ran a California Native Planting and Maintenance Workshop at the San Marcos Historical Society. In January 2017, we went back to check in on the plants. After the rains that we had through December and January the plants looked really good.
Winners and Losers
We lost the Sticky Monkey Flowers (Mimulus aurantiacus), but everything else looked super and very grateful for the beautiful soft rain.

No Automatic Irrigation System
You can read more about how we decided not to install an automatic irrigation system at the garden. The post takes you through the math to demonstrate why we decided we did not need it.
