Two members spent 90 minutes planting an additional 45 tomato plants in Taylorsville Garden Wed. morning.   Total tomatoes now growing in Taylorsville are 52.

Because of the several properties we are working in this year, we plan to grow more of the same crop in each garden.  It will make it much easier to harvest the crops and we can water each crop more efficiently.

For example, South Jordan A & B gardens will grow the bulk of our summer and winter squash, Taylorsville will have the bulk of our tomatoes, Riverton will have a lot of corn, along with Taylorsville and West Jordan A.  

West Jordan A has 2 sections.  The front section will have all beets and carrots.  Holladay A has all the leafy plants like lettuce, spinach, cabbage, kale, etc.  Holladay B has the bulk of the peas.

It's very tricky this year since we have to work fast and furious when it's not raining to get crops in the ground.
