I have done a grave disservice to the readers of gardenerd who may actually want to buy some native plants. Remember when I mentioned the Brick Works? Well, I didn't see that they also have a native plant nursery every Saturday from May 26 to July 8. I did see they had plans to have a permanent native plant nursery by 2009, but didn't realize they had a temporary one RIGHT NOW.
See? It's true. So get thee to the Brick Works and buy some native plants! They also have a "certified-local" farmer's market on Saturdays from 8 till 2, which I believe means that there are only real growers there, not just peddlars of produce from the Food Terminal.
I have high hopes to go there today myself, provided Sugar D is game.
