Far Out Flora Shin-Ding

Mystery Dudleya (we’re thinking it’s D. ‘Frank Reinelt’)

Are you plant nerdy? Do you live in the Bay Area? Want to come drink a beer or two and look at our garden? Saturday, August 27th from 2-6PM we’ll be opening up our garden in Outer Sunset for fellow plant dorks to come hang out. If you want to come, post a comment such as “heck yeah, I’m in” and use your email address when posting, so we can send you an invite. Our Bay Area blogger friends Dirty Girl Gardening, Plantgasm, Phyteclub & The Pitcher Plant Project started the brilliant idea of hanging out about two months ago, and this month we’re hosting the Bay Area Plant Peeps (BAPP) fest. All the bloggers will be here with the exception (maybe) of Katie from Phyteclub (hope you can make it). Make sure you check out their most recent hilarious sexy plant posts.

There’s a block party going on the same day to celebrate Java Beach’s new restaurant/cafe Beachside  (looks pretty cute), so you may not be able to park on our street. No worries, there’s plenty of spots on the Great Highway frontage road. We’re out in the boonies, and  conveniently located a half block from the N-Judah turnaround for those who utilize public transportation.

The Brugmansia sanguinea is starting to bloom!

We’ll have some snacks and beers, but feel free to bring stuff to consume. WARNING: The garden may look more attractive on your computer screen than in real life. You may see ignored pest issues gone bad, bizarro hack jobs on fuchsias, plant abuse and other horticultural ideas gone wrong. We’ll try to hide most of this before you get here, but it’s impossible to make it all go away.

Gardeny Stuff To Check Out Nearby Our Place:

Amazing Succulent Garden at Rivera & the Great Highway frontage road.

La Playa Community Garden on both sides of Judah are kind of fun. There’s a bocce court, lots of natives and succulents if you head to the south part of the garden.

Urban Bazaar in Inner Sunset will be opening up their Succulent Bar on Saturday

The SF Botanical Garden & The Conservatory of Flowers are just a couple miles up the road, too.
