When springtime was approaching we were asked to go help another member family roto-till their garden plot down at a community garden. The husband had injured his shoulder and asked us to help. Working in their garden got us missing our garden back home. We wondered how we might grow one here at or near our apartment complex. The Garcia family from our ward lives right behind our apartment complex. We have been over to their house a few times and we love them! We approached Brother Garcia about working together with their family to plant a garden in their backyard. He said they had never planted a garden before, and seemed a bit hesitant at first. Later, he approached me and said their family was now enthused about trying to plant a garden. In the meantime, Brother Brinkerhoff from the ward offered to lend the Garcias his roto-tiller to prepare their land. So, on Memorial Day, good Brother Brinkerhoff took some time away from being with his family to drive into town (he lives 40 minutes away) and bring his roto-tiller. He and Brother Garcia and I (Ron) took turns tilling the soil. It was pretty hard and needed several passes. The excitement level was building with the whole Garcia family as they saw this plot of land being transformed into a family garden. Next step was to go to the nursery and pick out some plants.
