June is Gardening Month

With our June gardening theme top of mind as we walk the city, we're struck by how important plants are to our sense of SF. There's the unmistakable smell of eucalyptus, the succulents that thrive along Ocean Beach and the massive aloe plants that erupt from sidewalk planters; the wisteria rail, and those wacky orangey-red bottlebrush trees that drop saffron-like threads in the street. Cypresses, palms, pines... an amazing variety of textures and blooms and colors and smells--all of which tell us we're home. So in homage to our city green, both privately- and city-cultivated, we'll continue to blog the best resources for city gardeners this week. In other thematic news, stay tuned for more Greenest Thumb Contest entries, and send in yours if you haven't already. Instructions here. Last, we're dangling a line for intrepid nesters (lay or professional) who think their home should be featured in an AT:SF house tour. Our bread and butter is the creative use of limited space, be it a flat, houseboat, studio, live/work loft, or converted garage, so send us pics of your room, home or tiny palace that show you living well on a small scale. If we agree we'll contact you about setting up time for a visit from AT.
