Gardening Blog Every Other Week or So
Whew! We managed to get through July without a recurrence of our 116-degree days from 2018. Of course, we still have the rest of our hot season to come. We never know how the gardening year will play out -- hot or cold, wet or dry, with great success or abject failure. Of course, it always turns out to be a mixture of all possibilities. So we figuratively plow on, exploring new techniques and plants as well as repeating our favorites. Now is a great time to start considering what needs improvement and what magic already works as we begin thinking about our cool-season garden.
In the meantime, let’s move back out into the garden with some timely tasks and harvesting highlights. (To read more, click on "Blog.")

Gardeners always recognize one another because
they know that in the history of each plant
lies the growth of the whole world.

Yvonne Savio has been “playing” in home gardens, community gardens, and school gardens for some 60 years in both Southern and Northern California. She retired in 2015 as Master Gardener Coordinator for the University of California Cooperative Extension in Los Angeles County, following 21 years developing the program and providing the information and photographs for the Master Gardener website. From 1994 to 2015, Yvonne taught 1,183 Master Gardeners who then helped 1.3 million Los Angeles County residents to garden more sustainably, with emphasis on encouraging limited-resource and underrepresented residents to grow more of their own food. With this www.GardeningInLA.net website, she provides gardening resources for the greater Los Angeles County area and beyond.
