Evans Family Home: A Summer Garden

We started our project with the Evans Home in late spring of 2008 and didn't have enough time to clear the brush and do the work that would be needed for a full on vegetable garden, so we decided to clear out half of this flower bed and plant some tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and sunflowers there for the summer.
The plants are doing really well, and the kids have taken charge of things and make sure they get watered on a regular basis. We visit frequently to work on other areas of the yard and pull some weeds, but for the most part the garden is growing itself. In late June the cucumbers started coming in. The tomatoes are coming right along, and soon they will be bigger than the kids at Evans!
