Retired fire captain Jody Rogers is a native San Diegan who grew up in Point Loma and has always enjoyed gardening. A few years ago when he trimmed his over-the-rooftop plumeria, he didn’t know what to do with all the cuttings. “So I started potting them up,” he said, using his own organic compost and visiting farmers markets. His plumerias are the celidine variety – “That’s the most fragrant variety, white with a yellow center, the ones the make Hawaiian leis out of,” he said. His booth will sell both his plumerias and his organic compost that I PH balanced, very fertile and filled with earthworms.
Blaine Tiongson and Theresa Solis’s ine of hand-painted terracotta pots are filled with plants they propagate. At the Momma’s Pots booth, shoppers pick a pot, and the proprietors suggest a plant to fit the environment where it will live; then the shoppers top off their selection with mosses, gravels or rocks, and it’s all tied up with a Japanese-style fabric. Momma’s Pots also sells bath balms and soy-based candles.
