Over the past week, Adrian Florido and I have been jumping into different San Diego neighborhoods, exploring and bringing you photos and stories about our communities.

This means that many days, we’re just being dropped into the center of a place we’ve spent little time in. So we drive and walk around and just start talking to people.

Our explorations don’t always immediately lead us to stories, but I always make visual notes along the way.

This morning, we found ourselves roaming the RECON Native Plants nursery at the southern edge of Nestor. It’s one of the few parts of the community that was never developed. It was interesting to see a large farm right up against single-family homes, which spoke to the hodgepodge way in which this neighborhood has been developed.

Here are some of my visual notes from this morning, around the nursery:
