Aloe-ysius the Tree Box Aloe

Picture perfect Saturday in Petworth!  Walked to the farmers market, browsed at Bentley’s antiques…swung by Upsher Street Books and gardened!

Like most streets in Ward 4, our tree boxes have repurposed tire planters.  We’ve tried to grow mint…but one especially memorable visit and Kentucky derby depleted its stock.  Succulents have done well in the box, so we bought an aloe plant at the market and have named it after a Jesuit.

Salmon and bok choi for lunch today, in a garlic coconut milk sauce.  Off to the Takoma Park Porch Music Festival to play ukulele later.  Then afterwards, maybe I’ll even get to clean my fountain pens!  Somebody pinch me.
