California Native Foods Lunch Event (December 8th at CNGF) @CalNativeGarden

Eating California

Did you miss the U Pick Tomato Event? It’s happening again this Sunday (9/16)

It’s That Time of Year Again: Tomato Time!

Join the fun at our Second U-PICK Tomatoes Event of the season:

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH from 11am to 3pm

This summer we have stellar crop of tomatoes, with a huge variety of heirlooms, cherries, slicers, and paste tomatoes. Explore the tomato patch and take home your share of the harvest for eating fresh, canning, and sharing with friends!

Please bring your own harvest bag, box, or bin. All tomatoes are $1.75/lb. First come, first serve, so get here early for the best selection! 

Silicon Valley Gardeners, prepare for March 31st for a plant shopping extravaganza!

March 31st is going to be an extremely fun day in San Jose because both the Master Gardener’s Spring Market and the CSSSJ’s Plant Sale will be held.  Unfortunately they will be at different locations, but maybe next year they can iron out that detail!  Please pass on this info to any friends whom you think may be interested.  These events happen only annually!

Here are the event details:

Spring Garden Market

A great event to buy heirloom varieties of baby plants, a huge variety of flowers, and herbs.  I will be volunteering at the California Native Garden Foundation booth!  Come by and say hi!

Time open: 9am-2 pm.

Cactus and Succulent Plant Sale

I love the Cactus and Succulent Society of San Jose.  What an interesting group of folks!  They are totally obsessed with finding or growing from seed these highly unusual species of cacti and succulents!  They’re such nice people too and always willing to answer questions without being overly technical.  Come to this sale if you are looking for unusual plants…I guarantee you’ll find some.  I’m sure they will have your basic succulents and cacti as well that might be more forgiving to a beginner.  But remember don’t over water the cacti and succulents!

Time open: 9am-5pm.  Also open on April 1st from 10am-4pm.
