... I got down on my knees, and pretend to pray"
The Mamas and the Papas have been playing in my head the past few days because... I'm headed to California tomorrow! I've never been to California before (well, I made a layover in LAX once, but airports don't count) so I am quite excited. I'm going to be enjoying the California Spring Trials (formerly and better known as the Pack Trials) with a group of mostly academics -- including some good friends.
If you've never heard of them, the Pack Trials are a chance for the big plant breeding companies to show off their new varieties to everyone. The trip will be a great inside peak into the ornamental plant breeding-industrial complex, and a chance to see what may be coming soon to a garden center near you. I'll take tons of pictures and give you all sorts of thoughts about it all when I return next week.
So stand y!
