garden box time
It's not even March and today I put a cherry tomato plant into the garden box. I love Los Angeles! We recently cleared out the winter veggies from our garden box. Today we planted broccoli, purple cauliflower, cherry tomato, bok choy, red lettuce, green lettuce, red beets, arugula, and marigolds.
Before planting, we spread about a 1.5 inch layer of compost on top. Then we placed our little plants in the soil, watered, and prayed for a nice gentle rain tonight or tomorrow. Hopefully they will thrive.
