The other day I did a little exploring around La Cresta ravine; downstream of where I had planted garlic, of which none was still found, there were what I think are called foxtail grasses. Beyond that, yellow plums, almost ripe. Beyond that, blackberries, wild turkeys, purple Japanese plums. Couldn't find an easy way out to the street, but stepped over a short barbed-wire fence at the top of the hill, went down a private road, and found myself on Western.

Making another batch of rice beer. Will probably try some different herbs this time.

Idea for portable generator: flywheel with embedded magnets driven by cord, separate from a waterproof enclosure with the coils.
