Behind the Scenes

"Life has given us lemons (a dozen Meyer lemon trees to be exact)... and calamansi (!), makrut limes, oranges, grapefruits, guavas and avocados! Plus peaches, fuyu persimmons and apples in the summer. We’re filled with gratitude for our new home in Scotts Valley. Come visit and get your Vitamin C on."

"Tapas at Contigo. These three guests started off their meal well! Bacon wrapped dates, oxtail hamburguesitas, croquetas, sardine-avocado toasts, a gilda and an anchovy-fresh cheese montadito."
