Working the Garden

Like many, some HFP clients enjoy the springtime weather as an excuse to get out and work in the garden. One client from Saginaw CF updated HFP on his work so far: "I was happy for the rain this morning because the garden plots were too wet to work, and after six straight days of manual labor, my body was happy for the rest. Three of us planted 630 onions after raking out the bed. This heavy clay soil turns instantly brick-like after a day in the sun, but once we got a straight line up we put in 63 rows of ten plants each. My friend N did another 630 in the afternoon!"
