San Francisco Flower & Garden Show kicks off today and runs through Sunday. I look forward to the garden show every year and even more so this year because I'm one of the speakers. If you're coming on Thursday, be sure to stop by the Kitchen Garden Stage at 10:30 a.m. for a garden-to-table presentation on growing and preserving citrus. I'll cover the gardening info and my friend Jennifer Altman will tell you all you need to know about preserving citrus with salt and using it in recipes.
The show has lots of other great seminars lined up as well as the always-interesting display gardens. Hope to see you there!

If you're looking for ways to squeeze more fruit trees into your home garden, check out the new book "Grow a Little Fruit Tree" by Ann Ralph. Ann used to work at Berkeley Horticultural Nursery and did really helpful demos on pruning there. She's taken her years of experience with fruit trees and funneled it into her new book to help gardeners see the wisdom of keeping their fruit trees small, i.e., less than 6 feet tall. Check out my review of the book at Gardening Products Review.
