12B Wednesday, July 14, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter $ # ACCIDENTAL GARDENER MONA HILL Staff Writer mhilt@plumasnews.com The tomato is king on the Amalfi Coast. Together with the southern exposure, very warm days, traditional cultivation methods and rich volcanic soft, every house- hold boasted a garden plot of tomatoes straight out of scenes from "The Godfather." The vines are tied to rustic and well-used wooden poles that run horizontally above the vines -- dozens of them per household. The preferred regional variety is pomodoro, small oval fruits of the most luxuriant red color and bursting with flavor. Because of the steep terrain, the gardens are terraced wherever there is space. They don't use mulch to conserve water, despite the blazing heat. Everything is planted in straight, mounded and furrowed rows. There are no row covers. Almost every garden has a grape arbor; if it's not a grape arbor, it's wisteria, jasmine or trumpet vine. That is where most families sit out in the evening. Because Praiano only has two streets open to vehicle traffic, there are many stone footpaths climbing up and down the hillside. Those make it possible to peer over the garden walls, which I did shamelessly. I love my mountain home, but I am filled with envy for the plethora of plants that will grow in the Mediterranean climate: bougainvillea, the aforementioned wisteria and trumpet vine, jacaranda, roses, cosmos, geranium, colorful flowers of all kinds. None of the gardens I saw had drip lines, everything seemed to be watered by hand or hose. Each plant had small wells, and in the cool of the evening, I could hear families in their gardens, chatting and watering. In some cases, there were large jars -- five, 10 or 20 gallons -- that stored water. In the case of furrows on the slopes, I was curious about how gardeners got water to the plants at the top of the slope. It seemed to me the ones at the top would never get much water while the ones on the end would get too much. I never got a chance to find out; they don't seem to water often or much. You can imagine my dis- may when I returned home to find the chickens had escaped and eaten my cabbage and lettuce. Major sigh. I guess I can plant my fall garden now -- no waiting for me. The lawn was a foot high and things were looking a bit parched. Fortunately, we have a newer lawnmower with trac- tor drive. I only had to empty the bag four or fwe times. Also fortunately, my sister came along and got the water going on the flowerbeds. I'm nearly caught up -- just the weeding left to do and we know that's never ending. Things are definitely brightening up around the place. I am, however, troubled by my azalea's failure to bloom for the third year in a row. I fed it with the appropriate fertilizer the last two years, not sure what the problem was. It's planted at the edge of the lawn, under pine trees and not in deep shade; it gets brief shots of sun in the late afternoon. I haven't pruned it since it lost the blossoms after planting three years ago, except to cut out damaged branches. I picked a hardy variety like I always do: -25F just in case. I haven't protected it against the snow. Perplexed, I googled the problem and-discovered there are four major causes: too much shade, too much nitrogen, too cold and pruned at the wrong time of year.

Pete Hentschel Quincy Free speech I take full responsibility for the iews I express in my letters. No other person has anything to do with what I say, least of all has the newspaper that is fair enough to print all views. I am fully prepared not only for disagreement, but for harassment as well. I feel no animosity toward harassers. I can empathize with them, but I cannot condone their tactics. When Robert Ryan read ultra-conservative Robert Welch's secret Blue Book of the John Birch Society on the air, he and his family were so harassed and threatened that in order to protect his family he was forced to move away. I am very sorry that what I may write causes some to stoop to harassment; but that being said, I am convinced that it is my duty to continue to exercise my constitutional right to free speech. Salvatore Catalano Taylorsville Gas . ~ D~,, Thank you, R0b~rta Carl; son, for speaking' up about the gas price in Chester. I thank God I work in Susan- ville sO that I may fill my tank up while I am there. The gas price in Susanville is, at its highest, $3.13 a gallon for unleaded. Just about a 50- cent price difference always. My husband, however, has to pay the i:idiculous price in Chester of $3.59 or higher, because he works out at the lake and does not always have the opportunity to get out of town to get gas. I am so just about ready to carry a gas can and fill it up though. What gives the Chester gas station merchants the right? I really think that Chester resi- dents need to, at least one day, don't buy gas from any of them. I am embarrassed by this outrageous price difference, especially when I have com- pany come. I always tell my guest to "buy gas before you get here" or "get gas when you leave." Glenda Turnage Chester Active, Reserve or National Guard.
