Got an overactive zucchini or tomato plant that won’t stop giving? Then it might be worth stopping by the Garden Swap on Saturday at the Milagro Allegro Garden in Highland Park, where the green-thumb set will be able to swap everything from surplus lemons to compost and equipment. Lovers of books and bargains should check out the book sales at the Echo Park and Silver Lake libraries. Echo Park will be the place to be this weekend for folk and roots music fans, with the Fretted Frog, the new acoustic guitar shop, hosting its first in-store concert tonight and the all-day Roots Roadhouse filling three stages at the Echo and Echoplex on Saturday. Cool off on Sunday (if the weather ever heats up) at the Eagle Rock Valley Historical Society’s Ice Cream Social. More details in the Calendar Listings.
