RED BLOODED SORREL: I super love on the dramatic gorgeousness of Perennial Red Veined Sorrel! The baby leaves are so perfect in a salad or any leafy green sauté. Plus easy, tough and gorgeous is a great combo in the garden. It will be plentiful today at the South Pasadena Farmers market! ;). See you there!
TOMATO BABES ARE HERE! Like the bada$$ new purple cherry ‘Blue Berries’ from #BradGates , ‘Brad’s Black Heart’, ‘Ananas Noire’, awesome ‘Aussie’, and oh so much more. Plus this week Yellow Alpine Strawberries, the best culinary English Lavenders, Russian Tarragon, and the return of Mint. Enjoy the rain, enjoy the sun, see you soon! :)
SOUTH PIZZY FARMERS MARKET TODAY Y’ALL! First #tomato babes, omg! San Marzano Redorta and Carmello are here for the soft launch, way more varieties to follow. New Zealand Spinach is back, #bronzefennel, #stingingnettle, heirloom #asparagus, 2 types of Runner Beans and oh so much more! See ya there. :) PS. Pictured my fave #Mexican Flame Vine.
MONSTERA DELICIOSA: Delicious monster, indeed! This #philodendron is such a perfect example of how fun botanical nomenclature can be and why cultivating a basic understanding of the scientific classification of plants, ie, Genus and species will help you navigate the plant kingdom. Now, I don’t know the backstory of Monstera deliciosa, but I’m betting it’s a good one! ;) Salud, homeboy Carl #Linnaeus! Happy Friday!
