Back to the Farm

As we had done the previous year, we decided in the summer of 2010 to take advantage of our church's program which allows each family a garden plot on the church farm. Watering and insect control is provided; we need only to plant, weed, and harvest.

The previous year, our schedule prevented us from weeding for the first week or two of the season, and we spend the rest of the summer fighting a losing battle against the weeds. This time, however, we were able to weed early on, and the difference was night and day: we could barely keep up with the harvest.

And, as before, we were happy to have eight little hands to help!

Now, we wait...
