Randy and Becca's weather and gardening site.
You will also find links about local weather forecast and our gardening ambitions on Fox Run and the
progress we have made and also the joys we have found in our garden.
We have 5 gently sloping acres in the
Sierra Nevada's that we acquired 7 years ago
to the date I'm writing this February 1st 2008. The property has a small 40+
tree orchard which sadly we don't have time for and am looking to find someone
who would like to work it.
I have a great passion for weather observation and installed a personal
weather station 4 years ago, which I've wanted for many years and Becca and I
decided we should finally purchase one.
observations you see on this site are driven by this weather station so check
back if you need a weather update.
I have built a small 3x6 pond with about a 15' stream and two water falls in
the rear of the house and it serves as the center piece for what we were
hoping would be a nice urban yard area for entertaining. Well dreams do come
true. Last year I spent about 200+hrs and created a small oasis in the forest
for us, our dogs and friends to enjoy during the summer.
I want to thank Dave my good friend for his time and expertise that made some
of the structures come to life (concrete walk ways, sun deck...etc.). I also
want to thank our sons Tyler and Lee and some of the local boys for helping
with the lawn which I said I would never do (labor intensive, water
user...etc.) but have become obsessed with and am happy to labor over. Also
there’s Ernie’s tireless effort in helping maintain the garden by watering
racking among other things. Last but not least I want to thank my wife for
supporting me in all my endeavors including this one.
