I'm so jealous.

Regarding the change in blooming you saw in your move from Carmel Valley to
Moss Landing, check out the average annual rainfall:

Carmel Valley:  17.5 inches
Moss Landing:  23.25 inches

So an average year in Moss Landing will be like a 130% rainfall year in
Carmel Valley.

Combine that with low chance of frost, and it sounds like Moss Landing is an
ideal place to grow these things.
