All around the city, you can see gardens coming to life. It's time you get your self out there and get one going for yourself. Take advantage of all this rain and sunshine we're having, sow some seeds and get those plants going. Browse these pics, see some edibles and others that grow well in SF-it'll leave you wanting to get your hands dirty.

Join a cool crowd at Hangr 16 for the opening of "Recurring Dreams," a solo show by prolific local artist Todd Scalia.

Just before lunch, we tried to stump you with this parking quiz question: You park in a spot with a sign posted that says, 2-Hour Limit, M-F, 9 am to 7 pm. It's 9 am. You move your car at 11am to another block. When are you safe to park on the original block again without fear of getting a ticket?
A) After 1 pm
B) After 4 hours
C) After 7 pm
D) After your odometer has moved one tenth of a mile

You know you're lying if you say you've never thought about how you and your best friend or significant other would ace CBS's The Amazing Race.
