Coming up

This week has been pretty quiet what with moving house. I had some great help from Leah on Sunday though: she brought lots of plants and helped me plant them (plus some asters (Callistephus chinensis) grown from seed by me), as well as weeding, trimming and all the other stuff she's good at.

The Potrero Hill Garden Tour is coming up on September 13th, in support of the Library. P. Garden is on the route, so I'm going a little nuts trying to get everything tidy for that. Inevitably such a young garden is not going to look as good as a more established one but hopefully it still inspires people to give gardening a go! Tickets are $25 or $40 for a pair, and you can buy them at Christopher's Books or Farley's Coffee.

Also worth checking out is this note from a neighboring edibles garden:

Slow Food USA is sponsoring an Eat IN to support healthy food in schools on September 7th. These are happening all across the country, over 230 locations so far. Our little garden at 18th and Rhode Island will be one of them. I would like to invite all of you to come share lunch with us in support of healthy food in schools.

More info can be found at

Finally, this Saturday is a volunteer day. From 12-2pm you can come join in with a little weeding, mulching, digging, etc so come on out! I could use a hand. Or 6 :)
