Beneficial Beast in the Green House
After taking a long break from Master Ken's Sunday gardening classes, I am now back in the green house on Merritt College campus. This past Sunday we cleared out all the dead plants, propagated rooted plants, and made new cuttings. While we were busy clipping, potting, and misting, Master Ken came through one of the doors announcing that he just found a "beneficial beast"! Everyone gathered to see what he was talking about. He extended his arms and opened up his hands. There was a brown Pacific Tree Frog in his palm. He told us that this frog is definitely beneficial to us because it eats bugs in the green house. After he showed us the frog, he put it back in the back green house where it was discovered.
