This is the hill where gopher predation is so rampant that even the above ground vegetation gets eaten. The same hill where my brother and I planted hundreds of acorns, which still sprout but get eaten before they are a year old.
A little farther up the hill is a clump of sages and buckwheat that is similarly unmolested by gophers.
Chalk a couple up for the natives.
