This month, the last two Sundays fall on Christmas and New Year’s, and the Mar Vista Farmers Market will be closed both days.
But don’t despair: The UC/CE LA County Master Gardeners will still be at the market — this month only on the second Sunday, December 11. They’ll reoccupy the Green Tent on their regular date, the FOURTH Sunday of the month, in January and every month thereafter.
Meantime: they are bringing some of the same winter plants they grew for you at the November market, including winter greens, spinach, chard and a few other hardy seasonal plants, plus some surprises…
Make sure you stop by for free seedlings and free seed packets, and remember to bring your leftover plastic “pony” packs (aka six packs) that your nursery plants come in, so they can plant up the January seedlings for you.
Great advice for anyone looking for monthly garden guidance can be found at this link: http://celosangeles.ucanr.edu/UC_Master_Gardener_Program/Garden_Tips_for_Los_Angeles_County/
And don’t forget, even though there’s been some rain (not much!), ALWAYS be waterwise!! www.bewaterwise.com is a great resource for you.
