We were excited to receive this inspiring image of Woollys on Gold Street in San Francisco. It comes from Branch Creative, the super talented group that helped us create Living Wall Planter 2.
It’s hard to see, but Branch actually used all three colors (green, white and gray) of Living Wall Planter 2s to make their living wall. They did a plantastic job filling, thrilling and spilling with a variety of ferns, spider plants and pothos.
If you’ve got a black thumb, flowering quince is a good choice. Virtually indestructible, flowering quince tolerates climate extremes and neglect. This deciduous thorny shrub can stretch up to 8 feet wide, makes great natural fencing, and puts on a big show of blossoms in winter. Plant in spring or fall.

Since it is the start of the new year and most people are focused on eating healthy. We bring you this lovely gazpacho dish with edible flowers you can grow in your own Woolly Pocket garden.
1 small to medium peeled Cucumber
1.5 cups heirloom Tomatoes
1/4 cup Vidalia Onion
2 cloves Garlic
1/4 cup packed Basil
1 small Hot pepper, seeded (or per your taste)
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Sea salt
1.5 cups Coconut water kefir (or can use water, coconut water, etc.)
2 Tablespoons Apple cider vinegar
Nasturtium and borage to decorate
In my Vitamix, I simply add everything in and don’t worry about chopping things too small. Adjust the size of the ingredients according to your blender’s capacity for blending. Blend all ingredients well until smooth, but not too long as to overheat. If you’d like this a little more chunky, pulse to blend. Check the seasoning, and decorate with more heirloom tomato slices, borage flowers and nasturtiums.
