City Farmers are, it seems, a family of gardeners living on a nice size lot urban sprawl forgot to engulf. They have a house on the premises, a small menagerie of farm animals, like ducks, hens, sheep, a horse, pigeons and a very very old, very docile dog that spends his time lying at various spots. The owners seem to have a great time living there and playing nursery. I'm saying "playing" because they are a very casual operation. They are a full spectrum nursery, that is anything that could possibly survive in San Diego is what they potentially have. They have a little bit of everything which includes succulents, bromeliads, tropicals, a truly good selection of water plants, palms, bamboos, ferns, seeds, spice and vegetable plants, hydroponics, bulbs, fertilizers, Radio Flyers, eggs (hen-made and stone), pots, soils. I am (or my plants are) totally addicted to their succulent soil mix which I buy compulsively from them. Sometimes they have no idea what they have, the Philodendron crassinervium I have posted pictures of on DG (http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/196013/) was found languishing in a corner, no one knew what it was, they sold it for 12 bucks or something like that. There is a guy there who is into fishes, he has goldfish, koi, tilapia (he raises them in an aquarium for cooking, I'm not kidding), some alga eating fish. There is even a little deli on the premises that sells great soup and sandwiches. So as you can see it is a very laid back and eclectic place. A 2 years ago they lost quite a number of plants in a cold snap; their prices have gone up significantly since that event which is understandable but also lamentable. That and the somewhat unpredictable nature of their selection is the reason for the only 4 stars.
