I'm relaunching Kolomona.com again. This time I'm experimenting with Jekyll WordPress was a little too heavy for my server, plus it was a pain maintaining it for security patches. This is a static site, no PHP, no Database, just pure html. So it should be relativly secure and hopefully fast.
I just bought a tea plant from Rock Ridge Orchards in Enumclaw.
Judy Bennett the owner of Rock Ridge was extremely helpful helping me to learn about my new Camellia Sinensis Sochi plant.
I was pretty excited to find out that there was a variety of tea plant the can tolerate the freezing of the Pacific NW. This variety of tea plant comes from the Russian area of Sochi.
I planted it on a gentle sloped hillside among the protection of several young alder trees.
I dug a very large hole and put plenty of compost, watered it thoroughly and used plenty of bark mulch on top. Hopefully in a year or so I'll have lots of tea!
