Our First Attempt At a Garden

There are some wonderful people in our ward who donated some of their land to ward members who were interested in planting a garden. We went to FHE to learn more about what this all entailed and decided to give it a shot.

Since I am still working Tommy and our good neighbor Boyd Palmer went over Friday morning and worked their hearts out. They tilled the soil by hand because the tiller wouldn't start, and then after that they began planting the seeds. They planted carrots, onions, and two different kinds of peas.

Tommy and I went over later so he could show me all of his hard work. The last three rows are our rows. We will plant some more things once we are sure the warm weather is here to stay. I will continue to post pictures and update you on our success!

way to go Tommy! I need to have something like that! How did you guys get that exactly. When I am starved and have no food because we have been asked to get food storage and i haven't gotten it yet I will be coming to you to eat my veggies and fruits!! Thanks for saving my life and my family. Most of all Thanks being prepared!

Good job, you guys are doing what your supposed to and planting a garden. Also in regards to the previous post, you guys are so awesome to watch all those kids. I know that in due time you will have some of your own and you guys will make the BEST parents ever. What a fun day for you and the Leroy kids.
