Spring greens and sunflowers! Snow peas and cilantro! The UC/CE LA County Master Gardeners return to the Green Tent on Sunday, March 25 between 9 am to 1 pm, with their usual array of lovely seedlings and seed packets, all to give to you for FREE!
Why? Because the mission of the MGs is to encourage YOU to grow your own — they'll help start you on your way, and answer your questions along the way.
Stop by the Green Tent to pick up some:
Pak Choi This member of the cabbage family is also called bok choy, horse's ear, Chinese celery cabbage and white mustard cabbage. Crispy texture with a flavor somewhere between mild cabbage and spinach. Eat raw when young or lightly steamed.
Cilantro Love it or hate it, it’s a staple of many different culture’s cuisines.
Lettuce Salad season is upon us!
Swiss Chard as lovely to look at as it is to eat. Stems and all!!! Steam, season, sauté — eat!!!
There’s still time to join one of the citywide Grow LA Victory Garden classes: four weeks of basic, affordable instruction that you can take when and wherever it’s most convenient for you.
And if you have questions about your garden, there’s a help line! Call or send email: http://celosangeles.ucanr.edu/UC_Master_Gardener_Program/Gardening_Questions/
Don’t forget these handy monthly garden tip guides: http://celosangeles.ucanr.edu/UC_Master_Gardener_Program/Garden_Tips_for_Los_Angeles_County/
And if you want the MGs to continue to provide seedlings, please recycle your empty plastic 4-, 6- and 8-packs with them at the Green Tent this Sunday.
