Come on out to the Greystone demonstration garden Wednesday, Jan. 2, to make up for Saturday's rainout.
And here's a hint for all you patio gardeners: push your pots out where they will get some rain. This is good for cleansing the soil in the pots. Also, I hope everyone has turned off their sprinkler systems for the week!
Now about the butterfly...
I saw a butterfly (shown in photo) in my backyard a few days ago.
It is called a Common Grass Yellow (Eurema hacabe) and is native to South America, Australia and Asia. My theory is that it arrived in SoCal as an egg on some imported produce and I'm worried because it's winter here. If you see one of these, take a picture and I'll post it here.
I'm also announcing our first ever contest: If you are currently growing 10 different edibles in your home garden, send me a list and a photo. All winners are invited to a tea party in the Greystone demonstration garden, with cookies baked by me.
