Bryson Elementary: Winter Greens Thrive

Like I always tell the students at Bryson Elementary, we are very lucky to have such a long growing season in Southern California. The lacinato, or dino, kale is a great example. With the winter rains finally here, the plant has flourished in our garden, along with other dark, leafy greens.

Here’s to the New Year and rain. Cross your fingers that we reach that threshold of 13” inches, which is LA’s historic average amount of rain.
