Despite what most people think, I don't spend all of my weekends in the garden...
Merritt Spring Plant Sale - May 5-6
Merritt College holds their annual spring plant sale this weekend. I scoped out the selection on Wednesday and they are well stocked; herbs, citrus, strawberries, vegetables, flowering plants and much more.
All proceeds benefit the Landscape Horticulture Department at Merritt College - a most worthy cause and a fun event!
