Master Gardeners, October 22, 2017

It’s KITTY GRASS day on October 22 as the UC/CE LA County Master Gardeners  occupy the Green Tent, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The MGs are bringing seeds and plants to give away FREE, and they have lots of cat grass seed. Come grab your bonus seed pack and if you’re lucky, you can pick up one of the plants that have already sprouted.

Here's what else they're bringing, (in addition to the kitty grass):
Italian parsley — easy to chop flat green leaves 
Kale — everyone’s favorite
Leaf lettuce - who says you can't eat salads in the Fall?
Snap peas  —  MG Sarah’s favorite, the chunky, crispy pods with sweet peas inside, eat ‘em whole, raw or cook ‘em  

Spinach — where would Popeye be without it?

Sweet William — flowers that are pretty AND edible!
Fava Beans — they might not turn into food until spring but they are also considered a cover crop, locking nitrogen in your garden’s soil.

For what to do this (and every) month in the LA County garden, visit http://celosangeles.ucanr.edu/UC_Master_Gardener_Program/Garden_Tips_for_Los_Angeles_County/

And please remember to recycle your “pony packs” — those little plastic 6- or 8-pack plant holders you get from the nursery — with the Master Gardeners so they can continue to plant seedlings for the Mar Vista community!
