Thanks, Mellowicious. I'm a retired San Diego County avocado grower, so I'm pretty well entangled in California water policy! We had about 100 producing trees when we bought the place. After mandatory water cuts we are now down to two good trees and a few stunted ones. Sent over 1000 pounds to the packing house the second year, once most of the trees had recovered from the previous owner shutting off the watering.

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
