Master Gardeners at the Green Tent

Posted on 02/26/17

The UC/CE LA County Master Gardeners will be at the Green Tent from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, February 26, giving away what you need to get your spring garden going and to answer your gardening questions. We're hoping for a sunny Sunday, but light rain will not deter the Master Gardeners. 
Hand planted with love by the MGs expressly for the Mar Vista community, this month they’re bringing these organic seedlings (PS: please recycle your used plastic “pony packs” with the MGs so they can keep planting future seedlings for you.):
  • Heirloom Broccoli Raab (aka Rapini) is commonly featured in Italian and Chinese cuisines. It has more in common with turnip than broccoli, but has turnip-like leaves, and dispersed buds that resemble thin, leggy broccoli stalks.
  • Tuscan Baby Kale - everyone loves this, MGs included!
  • Baby leaf lettuce mix - for those wonderful spring and summer salads
  • Bloomsdale spinach - the king of all spinach - the one with the curly edges
  • Cilantro - you either love it or hate it!
  • Snow peas - especially great with the broccoli raab if you make a stir fry
  • Gourmet greens -  eat them raw or add them to your smoothies
  • Mache -  Also called lamb’s lettuce, it’s been cultivated in France since the 17th century, a tiny dark green plant that grows close to the ground and has a sweet, nutty flavor that some people compare to the taste of corn.
