Delayed Gratification

Every winter we dream of the garden we will have when summer comes: corn, tomatoes and even watermelon! And every year when the season changes we find ourselves so busy that the dreams turn to unfulfilled longing. One year our "garden" consisted of the six flats of seedlings we had managed to start in April--a sad sight in July!

My mom came to the rescue earlier this month, clearing weeds and planting seeds. This was especially gratifying for Rich who's been developing community gardens and a Huber garden through his work as the Rusk County Agricultural Extension Agent, but not had time to work on the garden at home.
We're looking forward to a fall harvest!
