VegGarden365 is a planting guide from the Environmental Change-Makers of Los Angeles.
In Southern California, you can harvest vegetables every month of the year! The trick is knowing what to plant when.
No, you can’t necessarily grow awesome tomatoes 365 days a year. But with Southern California’s mild climate and no frosts / light frosts, cool season crops during the winter months can be wildly productive.
With this handy guide in your pocket, you’ll instantly know the answers:
“What seeds should I plant in October?”
“When should I plant snowpeas?”
“How deeply should I plant Swiss chard seeds?”
“Are my radish seeds too old?”
“What is the best spacing for lettuce plants?”

How do I know it will work?
The Environmental Change-Makers community group runs the Community Garden at Holy Nativity, in the Westchester neighborhood of Los Angeles. The Change-Makers have harvested from this garden nearly every week, year-round, since June 2008.
With VegGarden365, you hold the planting schedule which has made all those harvests possible.
