On the south side of Palos Verdes, on a small hill, sandwiched between Gaffey St. and the busy 110 freeway, is a quiet sanctuary of San Pedro Gardens where small parcels are leased to those interested in cultivating a bit of land. I met a man, who had mostly fruit trees including a big avocado and a few vegetables, who said he just liked coming there to be out in the open air.
My mother-in-law kept a small vegetable garden like that when they moved into a retirement community with no yard.
Do you have a vegetable garden or fruit trees? What do you grow?
