Weeds begone!

Up at the crack o'dawn today to go to the Sloat plant sale. I got some Penstemons for Emily's upcoming demonstration gardening event at UCSF (details to follow)

At 10am Matt and I made it to the garden. This volunteer day was another great show of might in numbers. In two hours Arum, Nataly, Elliot, Nate, Tanya and Miyuki cleared all the paths of weeds. Boom!

Miyuki and I also inventoried succulents, and Matt bought new locks for the tool shed. I chatted with Max from across the street, and David from around the 'hood. Matt set up the water and improved the path to the compost heap a bit too.

After that we all stood around eating ice cream Arum had brought from Mr & Mrs Miscellaneous which was excellent.

All in all, a lovely day! Photos show the Salvia elegans (Pineapple Sage) flowering nicely for the first time, and the Dyckia, getting ready to flower again.
