Seattle Tilth Edible Plant Sale

Seattle Tilth's annual edible plant sale was last weekend in Wallingford.  Piles and piles of plants were everywhere, along with chickens, donuts, and a steel drum band!

I love going to Seattle Tilth because I always get new ideas for things to use or reuse in my garden.  For instance, bamboo bits as garden edging:

Or a gorgeous espaliered apple tree:

I really restrained myself this year, with all of my plants that I started myself.  But, I always manage to find some new herbs that I must take home, like that 2-colored Ginger Mint in the background.  And how could I resist that giant $3 tomato plant?

We're also starting some raised beds at my sisters'-in-law's house next weekend, so I got them a blue rosemary plant. The goal is to do some greens (kale and lettuce), beans, peas, tomatoes, squash, watermelon, and maybe even some corn (if they let me!).  Their backyard gets so much sun and is already flat, I think it might actually work there!
