Wonder twins power activate! Form of... a plant sale!

Last night the P. Garden volunteers had a meeting about our upcoming plant sale (May 1st!) and it was Very Productive. Lots of brilliant ideas. Lots of witty repartee. Lots of guacamole and chips. The perfect meeting! We have a lot of work to do to make the sale happen, but everyone is committed and ready.

Today, inspired by that, I got out to the garden and potted up 44 plants donated by Anna, Leah and Deborah. It was a bit drizzly but aside from that, fun times playing in the dirt. I also sorted out the compost bins. The worms got new bedding, and one layer of their palace cleaned out into the big compost bin. The latter is full of compost that's ready to use!

Pics, from top to bottom: One last new daffodil on display today - "Fragrant Rose" up by the bench. Lovely. Also shown is a pink geranium (Pelargonium) behind the wrong way sign that is doing very well. Lastly, the "Kool Aid Bush" (Psoralea pinnata) is flowering for the first time! And the flowers do indeed smell like grape Kool Aid. Huh!
