Merritt College Herb Garden

On Sunday I took Kelsey to Merritt College with me to work in the herb garden. The crew has built this stairway (shown photo above) recently, and we were eager to pull the weeds out and plant more flowers and herbs along the path way. The weather was nice and warm while we worked in the garden.

Kiwi vines

The kiwi vines we pruned earlier this year has grown a lot longer. They are just about to reach the top of the arbor. I was surprised to see that all the strawberries seemed to have returned after the winter. This prompted me to check on my own strawberries after I returned home. I was surprised to see that my some of my strawberry plants are thriving.

After we were done working, we watered the garden thoroughly. We were getting ready for our annual spring plant sale on May 5th and 6th. We wanted the garden to look extra nice and inviting. Kelsey made sure that she moved out of the way before the water reached her.  Little did she know that she was going to get a bath after we left Merritt College.
