Yeah Rain & Scouts!

So excited to hear Austin got close to 2.5" over the weekend!  Cistern is already half full.
The neighborhood Boy Scout troop came out last week and got their hands dirty planting spinach, chard, lettuce, leeks and strawberries.  They will earn their nutrition pin tending their plot in the garden.
Here's an article on another great garden project started by a Utah Girl Scout who discovered 1 in 7 children in her state were hungry.  She decided the best answer was to grow food and raised thousands of dollars to start a community garden.
