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
Snap peas — MG Sarah’s favorite, the chunky, crispy pods with sweet peas inside, eat ‘em whole, raw or cook ‘em
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.
