Friday was a well needed day off from work, Union holiday bro. So I went to the Long Beach Community College plant sale. It was pretty late in the day so there were not that many people there, not much plants either. Next year I am going on the first day, bright and early. I heard there was a line out the door of people trying to get in to get the goods.
I picked up 5 1 gallon flowering garlic plants. While I was checking out there was a teacher there writing up my ticket. He was speaking to one of the kids and showing him that those were the plants that he had worked on. The student had separated and replanted all the plants I was purchasing. He seemed very proud of his work. I told him that I had a beautiful garden and his plants would have a nice home. The look in that emo kids eyes were unforgettable. He then gave me a ride to my truck in one of the flat bed golf carts. He was a cool kid, I wish him the best.
All-in-all a great sale. And yes I bought more tomato plants and no I do not need them. Its a problem.
Not sure what kind of palm this is but there are 100's growing in little pots all over the green house. Maybe they will be for sale next time.
Bananas growing on the border of the vegetable garden, beautiful fruit and flowers on these trees.
These artichoke plants were as tall as me but had no flowers. Not sure why. Maybe not enough sun? It did not look like they had been cut already. Beautiful plants though.
