Hi i have been a member of the of the website for 17 days and love its health and kindness theme. I am also a gourmet chef and a business person. I am wondering do you know of any fruit juice from California that you could recommend, that I could order online. California fruit is so sweet I have heard. I hear of the grapes and wine here and have access to these, I love fruit juice and it would be wonderful to have a brand that is grown there like the wines of Napa or Harmony. II am a gardener and am developing a fruit garden here at my home in Michigan. Raspberries, strawberries, concord grapes and blueberries are what I have right now. It is the middle of Winter and their is snow around them, so !they are pretty docile right now! I would love to get some hearty California varieties of these vines. Actually to get an idea of what I doing , I'd like to turn the property in to a vineyard, only a winding sort of whimsical design with these fruits all around the home, not in standard production rows. I also love vegetables and include these from time to time, every year my parents put in tomatoes and we get a large batch of these which we make soups and sauces from. The garden also has herbs which are delicious fresh. I have standing chives , thyme, oregano, mint, spearmint, lemon balm and lavender. I usually add a perennial or two such as basil and rosemary. I am in a hands off phase right now where I try to just let the fruit grow naturally with a minimal amount of input from me. Lavender is also something I cultivate here and have about 40 plants. I started out with a couple and just add each year. Lavender is so beautiful and easy to grow! Send me anything you have on any of these plants, I'd love to add them. Roses, clementis and English wildflowers are also cultivated here as well as daisies. If you have any information on the clean water agenda and the environment preservation let me know as well.
I'm in SoCal so I don't know of any. Perhaps some of the NorCal folks would know. Maybe try posting in the new section Alicia created called "Kind Connections". That is a more geographically focused area - that may help. =)
