Master Gardeners, August 28

This week the Green Tent will be occupied by plants, seeds and the UC Master Gardeners of Los Angeles County from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Bring on the crazy climate: This month they've decided to try for a second summer season! They’ll bring lemon cucumbers, basil, bush beans, bush yellow scallop squash, zucchini, Swiss Chard and Bell peppers. 

Why not make a summer squash salad with your harvest? 

If you’ve been planting from “six packs” (those plastic containers that seedlings come in at nurseries), please bring yours to the Green Tent to recycle for next month’s planting session — after all, what they plant is for you! And they give away the seeds and plants they bring for free!

Don’t forget: be water wise. Click here for great ideas.
