Thank you for visiting!
This is my first blog. Since it’s a baby blog, this photo is of new growth on avocado trees, plus newborn avocados!
My husband and I operate a large avocado ranch in Southern California. Now that our children are grown, family life has changed! Besides helping us manage the ranch, our son has started a mail order gift box/subscription business so that we can share the delicious premium fruit that we grow directly with the people who love to eat it! The whole family helps with the business, and I do the social media when I’m not teaching music lessons, directing choirs or working on the bookkeeping for the ranch.
As I have been learning how to get the word out about our avocado gift boxes and subscriptions, I have been meeting lots of people! I decided to start this blog so I could share stories about life on an avocado ranch, the changing dynamics of family life over time, recipes and food that we enjoy, and the special things that I discover along the way. Once in a while we are able to leave the ranch, so I share our travel adventures too.
I will be writing lots of different kinds of posts. Will I find a niche? Not sure yet. Stay tuned.
