How Does Your Garden Grow?
The first picture is of a squash plant grown from a seed given to me at the Square Foot Gardening Class.
The second is a picture of my garden, happily growing! It brings me so much enjoyment. I share my garden with my in-laws and it is so fun.
Many people in our Stake attended the square foot gardening class that was held this past spring. It was so interesting and well presented. One of our first blogs focused on information from his talk and also a web-site to access for more information. Hopefully many of you have decided to grow a garden and become more self-sufficient.
Perhaps you have used the cannery or attended a ward sponsored class at the cannery. If not, we encourage you to do so. Your Relief Society president or your ward food storage specialist will be able to answer questions about the cannery( or find out answers for you). Alkali Creek had a very informative class at the cannery a few weeks ago. It inspired us to get a 72 hour kit, grow a garden and can or freeze the produce properly, and also to use the cannery to get our years supply of food.
Bill and Susan Powell are the Stake people in charge of the cannery, and they have so much useful information. Please make use of all of the people that have the knowledge to help us do what the prophets have been encouraging us to do for quite some time now.
