We went to The Garden Kitchen today. We saw a lot of neat things in their garden. We saw pink and purple flowers, tomatoes, peaches, apples, strawberries, blackberries, and lots of herbs. Our tour guide's name is Jacqui and she is very friendly. She showed us their water harvesting system. We also got to see their 2 chickens, Pepper and Marigold. Pepper chases Marigold around, so Marigold was hiding. Jacqui told us that Pepper and Marigold are getting old, so they will be getting some new chickens soon (she said we could come back and see them). The Garden Kitchen has also planted some things outside of their own garden, near the sidewalks. The have planted fruit trees that their neighbors can pick fruit and eat it. They have also used planters to plant herbs for people to take and cook with. They have even posted ways that the herbs, such as rosemary, thyme, sage and mint, can be used in cooking.
