Spring Plant Sale 2010 @ Foothill College

It was a pleasant afternoon on the campus of Foothill College on Saturday, April 24, 2010.

Under the canopy of the open-air nursery were trees, shrubs, ornamentals, succulents, natives, perennials & grasses.  Booths were set up with organizations such as Native Revival Nursery and California Native Plant Society, displaying their products and information.

All the edibles were lined up neatly on tables and in open-top boxes including a variety of Lettuce, Pepper, Chard, and Basil plants. Heirloom Tomatoes with names like Black From Tula, Brazilian Beauty, Green Zebra, and Zapotec Pleated were among the selection.  All the edibles were bargain priced between $2-$4 dollars and, of course, we went home with more than we could carry.

All sales fund Foothill College's Environmental Horticulture Program.

First Crop of Organic Strawberries - May 2010

Our first gathering of strawberries this year from an all organic garden. You can clearly tell the difference between the two varieties.
'Quinalt' everbearing strawberries & 'Albion' everbearing strawberries. The Albion were the more petite of the two; both were super sweet.
